Im considering using Ext and Air for writing an asset management application for animated feature film production. The only alternative for writing the gui, for various reasons, is wxPython or any other Python gui language.
What I would like to do is pass calls from Ext via Air to behind the scenes Python scripts that move files, loads files in Photoshop or Maya, etc
My question is, is this possible. It says in the Adobe Air faq that booting other apps, loading files, etc is impossible from Air (for fairly obvious security reasons I guess), but does that mean that Air can only take (like drag and dropping text from other apps), not give?
