Subject: Ruby Scripting for Inkscape
Date: Wed, 08 Sep 2010 09:14:07 +0000
I am writing you because inkscape lists you as the
responsible for scripting/extensions.
The thing is I wanted to do some overlay based animations
with Inkscape. The idea is to name layers/objects and then
write scripts to show/hide them and take snapshots. This way
you can make a presentation by listing the snapshots.
Since the RubyInk web page was not working (I think this is
listed as Ruby's API for inkscape) I wrote myself a very
tiny API for manipulating SVG files. I only wrote enough
functionality for what I needed to do.
So, maybe somebody is interested in the code, or want to
improve it. I don't know how to advertise it, but if you are
interested, it's in http://github.com/thiagobart/rubyscape
