Is there a Metrics Machine extension API?
ArrowType last edited by gferreira
I'm hoping to build a secondary proofing view that will relate to work done in the Metrics Machine extension.
Specifically, I am hoping to take the currently-displayed string from MM and show that in a secondary view, probably processed through Drawbot.
But, this leaves me stuck at step 1: is there a way to access the currently-displayed string in MM?
I'm imagining some kind of approach like the following (though, this is a totally wild stab, based slightly on scripting with the Space Center):
>>> from mojo.UI import CurrentMetricsMachine >>> kernText = CurrentMetricsMachine().getRaw() >>> print(kernText) 'HHATHOHOO'
Is there any way of doing this or anything similar? Is there anywhere I might read more about scripts involving Metrics Machine?
Thanks for any leads!

The next version of the current extension will have a scripting API. We're going to release it very soon.
