I searched on Google for almost a day and now I give up. I can't find any reference or manual for writing TeXworks scripts in python... Does anyone know how I can find these?

If no, what are the basis for writing TeXworks scripts? Maybe it is sufficient to get a collections of scripts written by other people and then learn from there..


Quote from the MiKTeX mailing list:

...some people told us that they way we included Python was unsafe and prone to breaking some important Python functionality (at least on Windows, IIRC). Since we didn't find anyone so far who could "make things right", Python support was removed from the official builds for the time being. Besides, up until now, scripting (almost) exclusively concentrated on QtScript (which is pretty similar to JavaScript), so there was no real demand for Python so far.

  • I didn't know that, thanks! The strange thing is that the texworks-scripting-python is still present in ubuntu repositories – Red Jan 31 '14 at 15:24
  • tug.org/texworks also claims that "QtScript, Lua and Python languages are supported". Although the TUG homepage is almost never up to date about anything. – marczellm Jan 31 '14 at 15:56
  • @marczellm I'll ask Karl to get that sorted – Joseph Wright Jan 31 '14 at 18:41
