there is currently now way to use scribus without starting the GUI... if this is what you are looking for.

but there are way to interact with a running scribus instance from the outside or launch a script when starting it.

so, you may find a solution... even if scribus has no real CLI yet.

stay tuned... in the future it may get better!
