Scripting: Javascript/ECMAScript Support

Bug #170110 reported by Kidproto
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

The Sodipodi could have a Script Engine as the Corel so
the user could create functions to automatize edition
processes and new functionalities for the Sodipodi that
could be sent to the website.

I consider that he is something seemed with Javascript.
The syntax is knowed by a lot of people and is easy!

KIDPROTO: I know we've talked in chat and on the WIKI
about using ECMAScript or some other standard
technologies as a scripting language for Inkscape. See
WIKI for more info on this RFE.

It is improtant but it is difficult so reducing the priority
a little.
Probably better that scripting be tackled in a language
agnostic way using something like SWIG. Also directly
manipulating the DOM is a whole other issue.

Any update on that? User requests for automation like
actions in PS/AI appear pretty often.

Any update on using JavaScript in Inkscape? Both in batch and interactive
mode? This may help speed the way to animation.
