Cannot find Script Manager

Fri Aug 14, 2015 4:37 am
I was excited to see scripting capabilities with Kexi, so I thought I'd give it a go ...
After flipping through several flavors of Linux (I am currently using openSUSE Tumbleweed) so I could get a current distro of Calligra installed (I am at 2.9.6), I do not find the Script Manager under the Tools menu item as documented here - http://www.kexi-project.org/wiki/wikivi ... dbook.html

Is there a specific install of kexi that I am missing? Other required packages that aren't being flagged?

Thanks,
Blaine

Scripting is enabled by default, unfortunate combination of things happened here :)
* The above is a development wiki page for Kexi 1.0, not a Kexi 2.0 Handbook (volunteers needed to migrate it to http://community.kde.org/Kexi)
* Scripts are marked experimental in Kexi < 3.x

Please forgive.

In Kexi 2.0 scripts are accessible in the Create tab: https://www.calligra.org/kexi/attachmen ... rt-design/

Good news: script are going to be first-class feature in 3.x :) Also in forms, reports, and I hope elsewhere.
This will be JavaScript language only as this is the only option with sane level of security. (yes, Python devs gave up on the idea of sandbox)

Thanks. That explains my confusion.

Sorry to hear about abandoning Python.
