|Modules should be built on the same date as Audacity, otherwise the version string check will prevent the module loading.|
This is a GUI plugin that allows Audacity to be driven from an external script, using any scripting language that supports named pipes (Python3 is the recommended language). Please be aware of the security implications of allowing other applications or processes to control Audacity. For more information, see Scripting.
This is the start of an experiment that will ultimately provide a more flexible panel for the audio, label, MIDI and note tracks. It is currently only of value to developers and must be compiled from the latest Audacity source code.
This is a bare bones demonstration module.
To install a module, a new folder should be created and named "modules", and the built module placed directly inside it.
- Windows: the "modules" folder should be in the same location as audacity.exe
- Mac: the "modules" folder should be in the "Contents" folder.
- Linux: the "modules" folder can most easily be created in the home folder as ~/.audacity-files/modules
The module may then be enabled in Preferences. Restarting Audacity is required after enabling.
