    Honestly, there are none. You can go through Apple’s stuff, and the library in the Script Editor app, but other than that it is all just performing Google searches when you get stuck.

    But one piece of advice is maybe to avoid AppleScript at this point. JXA (JavaScript) has been available side-by-side with AppleScript in both the Script Editor and Automator for a while now and I think it is clearly the future. And then at least it has something in common with real JavaScript and the JXA that other environments have adopted. Something to consider.
