Grafiklabor: Scribus Scripting with Python

Grafiklabor, Zurich

Creativ Design, Rennes

Online participation

One of the nice features of Scribus, is that you can write simple Python scripts and create new features or automate repetitive tasks.

During this workshop we will discover the new Scripter engine Henning and Jain have been working on, over the last few years. It is now part of Scribus 1.5.0svn and it will be the default Scripter engine shipped with Scribus 1.6.

We will first have a look at the concepts behind the Scripter and find the main differences with the current Engine.

In a second step we will take the existing Calendar script -- which is distributed with Scribus --, rewrite it to use the new Scripter and publish it in the Scribus Wiki. Depending on the number of participants we will work all together by using a collaborative text editor or split the script in tasks and define small groups working on each tasks.

If there is some time left, we will learn how to add new commands to the new Scripter.
