Scripter

Here is documentation about the current scripting component in Scribus:

  • Scripter API -- Routines which can be used in scripts to control Scribus
  • Databases -- Scripts can interact with database software like MySQL or SQLite

This wiki is capable of letting users download raw code embedded into the pages and have it appear syntax highlighted.

  • So as to cite python script code with proper syntax hilight, use the following tag <syntaxhighlight lang='python'> instead of using the usual HTML tag <pre>.
  • See example and other possible tags : Wikitext for Raw Code Download

Note : A new script engine is currently being integrated into Scribus. The next steps will be to get the script engine to work (should already be ok), get the editor to work, revise the structure of the API, add new functions to the API and mostly : port scripts to the new scripter. See Scripter NG non-complete documentation about architecture

Pure Python Functions

The open() function is a pure python function and does not involve any Scribus code. Here are some pages with advices on how to handle unicode file names in python:

- http://docs.python.org/tutorial/inputoutput.html - http://www.evanjones.ca/python-utf8.html - http://boodebr.org/main/python/all-about-python-and-unicode

The string returned by the Scribus fileDialog() function is always Unicode UTF-8 encoded.

If file is not closed after python error within Scribus: This is up to you to handle python exceptions, Scribus cannot do that in your place

Script snippets

Needs some snippets

This section contains snippets you can use to create your own scripts.

It features:

  • reading a file
  • updating a status bar
  • selecting a frame
  • pausing the screen update

Script Template

Here is a script template with all setups. Use it as a starting point for writing your own script, fill in your application specific code. script template main(). There is also a template called boilerplate.py within Scribus Script directory.

You might also check out scriptmaker.py, a Python script to run outside of Scribus to make the beginnings of a script that only runs inside of Scribus!

Troubleshooting Scripts

The content is on another page, since this one has gotten a bit out of control in terms of its size.

Iterate over all elements on a page

page = 1
pagenum = scribus.pageCount()
content = []
while (page <= pagenum):
    scribus.gotoPage(page)
    d = scribus.getPageItems()
    for item in d:
        // do something
    page += 1

Get content like text from a frame

content = []
d = scribus.getPageItems()
for item in d:
    if (item[1] == 4):
        contents = scribus.getAllText(item[0])
        if (contents in content):
            contents = 'Duplication, perhaps linked-to frame'
            content.append(contents)
        elif (item[1] == 2):
            imgname = scribus.getImageFile(item[0])

ITEM TYPE

  • ItemType1 = 1,
  • ImageFrame = 2,
  • ItemType3 = 3,
  • TextFrame = 4,
  • Line = 5,
  • Polygon = 6,
  • PolyLine = 7,
  • PathText = 8,
  • LatexFrame = 9,
  • Multiple = 99

Auto-Output all Scripter Commands

From Scribus User http://meiradarocha.jor.br Mailinglist Feb. 2012

The output for this script is collected in Automatic Scripter Commands list.

d = dir(scribus)
for j in d:
   try:
       exec 'res = '+j+'.__doc__'
       if res[0:5] == 'float':
           print '\nCONSTANT:\n',j,'\nVALUE: float'
           exec 'print '+j+'\n'
       elif res[0:5] == 'int(x':
           print '\nCONSTANT:\n',j,'\nVALUE: integer'
           exec 'print '+j+'\n'
       elif res[0:5] == 'tuple':
           print '\nTUPLE:\n',j,'\nVALUE:'
           exec 'print repr('+j+')\n'
       elif res[0:4] == 'str(':
           print '\nSTRING:\n',j,'\nVALUE:'
           exec 'print repr('+j+')\n'
       else:
           print '\nFUNCTION:\n'+j+'\n\nSYNTAX:'
           print res
   except: pass

Image Manipulation
