Operating Audacity from the command line (experimental)

Post by steve » Tue Mar 13, 2018 9:35 pm

This is a short demo of controlling Audacity via the command line (in a terminal) using a Python script "pipeclient.py" (https://github.com/audacity/audacity/bl ... eclient.py)

This demo is running on Linux, but the script should also work on other platforms.
Currently it is necessary to build Audacity from source to enable scripting, though it is hoped that scripting will be available for general release fairly soon (no release date available yet).
