Since its early days, Siril can take user inputs as textual commands, from the command line. Recently, more commands have been added, enabling for anbasic automated processing of images. Commands can be stored in a file that we call script, and they are executed one after the other. Some commands can be used in scripts, some cannot, this is indicated in the help of the command line from the graphical user interface of siril.
There are two ways to start a script manually: using the @ keyword on the command line, followed by the script name, as explained here, or use the script menu.
The script menu only appears if some scripts have been found in the script search directories defined either by default or by the user in the program settings.
We encourage users creating their own scripts to publish them and make a link in this page with a basic description of what they do.
