Here is my script fro BBEdit and TeXniscope (it is self-contained):

tell application "BBEdit"
    set texFile to the file of active document of text window 1
    set texFile to POSIX path of texFile
    if the texFile ends with ".tex" then
        set TeXline to the startLine of selection of text window 1
        set baseName to (do shell script "basename " & texFile & " .tex") as
        set dirName to (do shell script "dirname " & texFile) as string
            set PDFfile to ((POSIX file dirName as string) & ":" & baseName
& ".pdf") as alias
        on error
            display dialog "No PDF file was found!" & return & "Did you run
pdfLaTeX?" buttons {"OK"} default button 1 with icon stop
        end try
        tell application "TeXniscope"
            open PDFfile
            refresh of the front document
            the front document goto line TeXline of source texFile
        end tell
    end if
end tell
