A pure python implentation for communicating to Adobe Photoshop

Project description

Photoshop Connection
--------------------

Photoshop Connection is released under the MIT license. It is simple and easy to understand and places almost no restrictions on what you can do with Photoshop Connection.
[More Information](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIT_License)

A python TCP socket connection to Photoshop CS5.5. This is a simple
wrapper class to facilitate sending arbitrary JavaScript to Photoshop and
receiving the result of the script. The Connection objet also has a
thumbnail method to write the a JPEG to a file-like object of the current doc
open in Photoshop.

There is a EventListener class to subscribe to events in Photoshop.

Example
-------

from pyps import Connection, EventListener

conn = Connection()
conn.connect(passwd='Swordfish')
conn.send('alert("Hello");', True)

print conn.send('$.version;', True)

def callback(message, *args):
print message.command
print message.content

def callback2(message, *args):
print message.command
print message.content
print args

listener = EventListener(conn)
listener.start()
listener.subscribe('foregroundColorChanged', callback)
listener.subscribe('toolChanged', callback2, (True, 'xxx'))
listener.subscribe('currentDocumentChanged', callback)

## -- We need to keep the EventListener alive
while True:
time.sleep(1.0)
