Scripting TWS on a Mac

Would anyone know how to script TWS on a Mac ? What scripting language should be used ? Applescript and Quickeys dont seem to be up to it. The first thing I would like to resolve is to just set all the orders on one given page of TWS to "Pause All" after the close of the Stock Exchange every day.

TWS on Mac

I believe your best bet is using JAVA or the Python as there is a Python wrapper for dealing with TWS/Interactive Brokers.
