InDesign Server SOAP Client

A simple python wrapper for the InDesign Server SOAP service for running InDesign scripts remotely.

Dependancies

  • suds>=0.4

Sample Usage

from indesign_server.client import InDesignServerClient
wsdl = "http://myserver.com/service?wsdl"
client = InDesignServerClient(wsdl)
client.run_script("c:\path\to\script.jsx", script_language="javascript",
            script_args={"arg0":"some value"})

Notes

The version of InDesign server I'm using (CS5.5) did not provide the correct endpoint in the generated wsdl file. You can use the host argument of InDesignServerClient to set the correct endpoint.

Also, timeout errors are common because InDesign server sometimes performs long running tasks. Set the timeout argument of InDesignServerClient to compensate.

from indesign_server.client import InDesignServerClient
wsdl = "http://myserver.com/service?wsdl"
client = InDesignServerClient(wsdl, host="http://myserver.com", timeout=500)
