[scribus] How to debug my Scribus scripts ?

There is a console of sorts in Scribus, but I don't use it.
A good starting point I think is to play with some small scripts to modify their behavior from what you find in the wiki.
When you're running a script in Scribus, 'print' goes nowhere.
What I typically do if I need such output while debugging is to create a messageBox showing what I need to see.

Don't hesitate to come to the list with questions if you get stuck.
