Scripting is different from programming. Scripting is something you typically do to make your own life easier. Here are a couple of examples:
- You want a table with all of slides in a folder, irrespective of folder hierarchy
- You want to make sure all of your slides in a folder are scanned at a particular magnificaion
- Referential integrity checks
- Custom upload jobs from your local hard disk to PMA.core that are difficult to handle manually via PMA.transfer
Scripting falls in a separate category of software development. You’re actually not developing software (though you may keep a collection of your more useful scripting around for occasional re-use). Rapid prototyping, ease of use, and programmer friendliness are key to get the most out of your scripting activities.
Ready to scale?
Our SDKs are conceived in such a way that upgrading from PMA.start to our full blown PMA.core is a breeze. All you need to do is modify your connection statement.
core.connect() # standard connect statement for PMA.start
core.connect("http://www.yourserver.com/core", "username", "password");
And you’re good to go.
