We can do that with a little Perl wrapper called ColorDiff. Get ColorDiff First, install MacPorts if you haven’t already. First snag — my new employer‘s network firewall blocks rsync for some reason, so sudo port selfupdate didn’t work for me. However, turns out that I can also get the ports tree using Subversion or tarball via HTTP. Next, install ColorDiff using the command sudo port install colordiff. Configure Subversion Client.

Mac OS can't detect any interface - Wireshark Q&A

Move and click the mouse via code. Most OS X apps can have their interface elements accessed by AppleScript, and so anything can be scripted.
