Welcome to FrameScript!
FrameScript is a high level, user-oriented, scripting (or macro) language designed to work with Adobe FrameMaker and FrameMaker + SGML.
FrameScript 6 supports FrameMaker 2015, other earlier versions of FrameMaker and the Windows 8 operating system. ElmScript is the product name for our customers in Germany and is identical to FrameScript with the same versions available.
Adobe FrameMaker is a popular document publishing software system. Since it is a mainstream product, its goal is to appeal to a large client base. Large software vendors have to carefully choose which features to put into each new release of their products. If it doesn’t put enough useful features in, it might lose customers. If it puts in too many which appeal to only a small market segment, it will be accused of software bloat. The problem is that someone’s bloat maybe someone else’s need.
To permit users to customize their FrameMaker license, Adobe provides the Frame Developers Kit (FDK) which allows programmers access to FrameMaker’s capabilities. It requires the use of the Microsoft Visual C++ compiler for Windows computers plus the services of an experienced (and usually expensive) computer programmer. The FDK gives programmers the power to customize FrameMaker beyond the off the shelf product. FrameScript now brings that power to FrameMaker users instead of just programmers. More
