> A suggestion I would like to make is something I'm at least experimenting
> with in new script articles. I've added a small preface to the article which
> would give a brief overview of the Scribus tasks that the script includes,
> since in many cases I find that I am looking for further information on
> syntax and associated information which is needed to do something useful.
> For example, to add a text frame with content, you need to create the
> frame, put text into it, choose the font, its size, color and perhaps other
> features, which ends up being a block of commands. I also look for ways to
> see Python in practice for more efficient and reusable code.
> Examples of this are at:
> http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/A_Standard_Form_with_Barcodes_and_Custom_Entries
> http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/Advanced_Graphing
> http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/Generating_a_Code39_Barcode
> Beyond this, I eventually want to edit the Beginner's Scripts page to
> provide an indicator of the commands that are used in a particular script.
> For example (probably will require a table environment):
> Generating a Code39 Barcode     haveDoc, valueDialog, messageBox,
> createLine, setLineWidth, setLineColor, setFillColor, setText, setFont,
> setFontSize, setTextAlignment
> I think that whenever you can see the particular collection of commands in
> action in a script it will be much more efficient than the online
> documentation.
> An additional feature of this is that both of these types of documentation
> can be done by anyone editing the wiki, so perhaps we can as a group bring
> up the utility of this section of the wiki.
