I'd be delighted to see "scripter2" see daylight. Especially if the scribus CLI option was also available (not sure if this happened or was just a thought).
I've being toying with porting "scripter2" as a personal project using qt5, python3 and c++11 for a bit with some limited success.
My questions are:
1) What is it's current status?
2) Has there been any work done on it?
Sorry for being too lazy to go find the code, but a question:
What tool(s) are being used to develop the Python / C++ bridge? This can make all the difference as to how easy it is to write a robust Python API.
If you want to be able to script the GUI, then it may make sense to use PySide, and then use it's tool for developing other C++ / Python bindings:
Otherwise, I'm a big fan of Cython for calling C/C++ code from Python. It allows tight integration and complete control and best-possible performance. And there is X-Dress, for auto-generating Cython code that calls C/C++. I haven't actually tried that yet, though...
