Re: Generic IOM Access Pattern

Is it possible to pass an argument to a script in a similar manner?

i.e. something like:

"/Library/Application Support/Perceptive Automation/Indigo 7.2/IndigoPluginHost.app/Contents/MacOS/IndigoPluginHost" -x ' /SomeFolder/indigo_script.py "dictated text"

Yeah, you almost had it:

Code: Select all
'/Library/Application Support/Perceptive Automation/Indigo 7.2/IndigoPluginHost.app/Contents/MacOS/IndigoPluginHost' -x /SomeFolder/indigo_script.py "dictated text"

Re: Generic IOM Access Pattern

Thanks Jay, it felt like I was close.

I'm still stuck though. How would I access the argument within the python program? Below is the error I received when attempting to retrieve it with the "sys.argv" command. Should I import something other than sys to do that?

Code: Select all

Post the actual code you're using. Guessing doesn't help anyone.

Re: Generic IOM Access Pattern

The problem seems deeper than my code. I'm just trying to prove I can pass something.

Code: Select all
#!/usr/bin/env python

import sys

def main():
   
    words = " ".join(sys.argv)   
    indigo.server.log(words)

if __name__ == "__main__":
    main()

Re: Generic IOM Access Pattern

Yeah, that's not gonna work. When specified that way, the args after the script name are just dropped by the IPH process (sorry, I had forgotten this).

We've got a built-in solution coming with 7.3. Basically, you write a wrapper script around an IPH call that accepts the parameters then creates a Indigo Python script that IPH executes and it passes the parameters to a specified method in a shared Indigo Python script. It's a little complicated to get right, but our built-in solution will be pretty easy.

You build a shared Indigo Python script like the one specified in the Scripting Tutorial.

When Indigo 7.3 ships, you execute this:

Code: Select all
/usr/local/indigo/indigohost -m indigo_attachments. log "Here is the message"


Which will call the log method in the indigo_attachments.py file example in the above link via a script that we construct. The shell script is this:

Code: Select all
from {path} import {method}
return {method}({args})


I insert the module in for path (indigo_attachments) and the method name for method (log) and the args as a string of the args. I then pass that script to the IPH process to run.
