This addon adds a Python scripting engine to Phaedra, allowing you to script in Python instead of JavaScript.

You can use this addon for the following purposes:

  • Define calculated features using Python formulae instead of JEP or JavaScript.
  • Write data capture modules in Python
  • Add utility scripts written in Python to the script catalog
  • Execute arbitrary snippets of Python code in the Console view


To install the Python addon, select Help > Install New Software. In the site list, select Phaedra Updates. Check the Python Scripting Engine item in the addon list, and click Next.


Aside from the different syntax, Python scripting can be done in the same way as regular scripting. See How To: Scripting for more information.
