Scripts and Plugins / Importing Python Modules in windows
« Last post by Michihalo on April 17, 2019, 11:46:45 am »
Hey all,

When i tried to import a module into scribus on windows, it always said that the module was not installed, even if Environment variables were setup and the module was correctly installed on python itself.

I therefore ran this inside the console in Scribus

Code: [Select]
import pip
pip.main(['install', '<moduleName>'])

This installs the package for all users for Scribus, after a restart of Scribus you can use it in the console or in your scripts.

I don't know if this is the best way to do it, but it works for me. Hope this helps someone

PS: pip has to be installed i suppose. For me that worked without any troubles

yes it makes sense.

the idea is that people can open a ticket in with the content or -- if they know enough of markdown and git / github -- even make a pull request that i just have to accept.

i'm working on the first showcase. once it's there, i can write a short how to. but basically:

- fork (it's the gray button int the top right corner)
- clone your fork or start editing it with the github web editor
- add a directory in 03.showcase with the current date and a title (2019-04-16-spektrum-88)
- in the new directory create a file "" with the description of your project
- add the images to the same directory and link them from the file
- make a pull request from the web interface

a bit more complex than a wordpress, but it has the big advantage that anybody can contribute, without needing special rights. i just have to accept the pull request (after having checked and eventually having fixed bugs).

i can give trusted people the right to accept pull requests... but it's not really needed for now.

Hi ale, I am wondering if (I am not so expert on website developments) is it possible creating a section that could be feeded by users or members(?) in order to populate the showcase or gallery page of the site ? not sure on how to describe it, could be like sending links (that could be previously approved by admin of course) ??
Could be a contact form where visitors wanting to display their works could send files or links .. ?

hope it makes sense ;)

i've added the facebook page & group to the page...
Ah ok. I appreciate all your help!
no, if you  have not set yet the styles, that won't work.

applying the styles will (mostly?) overwrite the current formatting.

what you can do: use the find and replace dialog to change the formatting... but you will have to do it for each frame (or chain of frames, i guess).

that's a restriction in scribus: if you have not started with styles, it's a bit too hard to introduce them at a later time.
I don’t know how to set a style and just have it update the spacing and not change the font, font size or anything else
If you could walk me through the settings thang would be great
Thanks for your response

mmm... that should be possible...

have you had a look at "file > document settings > document setup > sections"?
