Script Building Blocks received a nice review from Bob Patin over at Longterm Solutions:

I recently tried out Tony White's excellent ScriptBuildingBlocks tool for FileMaker, and was immediately hooked on the new abilities it offers to FileMaker developers working on the Mac platform.

And some kind words from Hal Gumbert at CampSoftware:

Wow! Script Building Blocks is really great! I love how fast I can now paste code. In the past I've been going to our 'library' database, finding a particular example script, opening it, copying the script statements, then switching back to the active database and pasting. Whew!!! Now, once I have the example installed, I only have to click a button in a floating pallet! Very nice!!!
