To automate the mouse click action on macOS, use Cliclick, a CLI for emulating mouse events, and AppleScript.
cliclick with Homebrew:
brew install cliclick
To click at the current mouse location:
This is the same as running with the full binary path:
Open Script Editor with Spotlight and paste the AppleScript code:
delay 15 repeat 10 times do shell script "/usr/local/bin/cliclick c:." delay 1 end repeat
AppleScript requires the full binary path to run
The script does the following:
- Wait 15 seconds (line 1).
- Click at the current mouse location (line 4).
- Wait 1 second (line 5).
- Repeat steps 2 to 3 nine more times (lines 3-6).
To run the script, press the play button or
⌘+R (Command-R). To stop the script, press the stop button or
⌘+. (Command-Period). See keyboard shortcuts in Script Editor on Mac.
