Jonathan Wight of Toxic Software (super leet programmer extrodonaire++) took up a little project that I wanted to do and wrote a "meta plugin" for VoodooPad that works just like my Lua plugin does. Only for Python, using PyObjC. How cool is that?
Download plugin + source: http://flyingmeat.com/fs/contrib/voodoopad/PythonPluginEnabler.zip.
It requires VoodooPad 2.5.3, and when installed (double with the click) it installs some examples in: ~/Library/Application Support/VoodooPad/Script PlugIns/ which you can take and copy and use with the full power of PyObjC goodness.
Here's a quick example that just selects the current line:
def main(windowController, args, *kwargs): windowController.textView().selectLine_(None)
It's pretty easy and shows up in the menus as "Plugin->Select->Current Line (python)"
And here's an example that creates a new page with the current date and inserts the link at the current cursor position.
