I work on a Mac and I am very familiar with Illustrator and its SDK. If you need a special tool for Illustrator that does not exist yet, you can explain your idea and if it's in my abilities, I can try to program it for you .
I use Illustrator since version 3.2 for Mac (1992) and I program tools for Illustrator from Illustrator 9 (2000).
I first program on Mac and when I can, I adapt my tools for Windows.
I also realized this site to put at your disposal the tools for Illustrator of my creation.
