More than powerful...

I wrote Scribus/Python-Scripts to manage all the Invoce-printing and Invoice-Backup in PDF here in the company.

With the power of Scribus, you can design and convert to PDF any kind of printing form. This is really really useful when you want to print tons of receipts or invoices with different data and with a same form or model.

We wrote a GUI in Wx-Python(wx-windows is a GUI toolkit) that receives, calculates taxes and saves it into a mysql database, then it communicates with the scribus-python-script to print data in the form.

I know there are other ways to make this, but this is the one that best fits our needs.

In conclusion Scribus-Python-Scripts are more than a simple feature in scribus. This scripts are a very very powerful tools if you know to how to squeeze its features and being creative with it.
