What is Legato?
It can be used as a standalone platform, a tool to add features and processing to various existing functionalities, or to expand or modify GoFiler’s menu and ribbon functions.
How does Legato work?
Scripts written in Legato can be hooked into the GoFiler ribbons and run as menu commands, run as stand-alone scripts, or can be called from the command line. When creating scripts to extend the functionality of your GoFiler product, the process to add the script to the menu requires you to simply copy your script into the Scripts folder in the application's installation directory.
Full documentation for writing scripts and Legato programs is available in the Legato User Manual. Additionally, certain applications in the GoFiler family include access to an integrated development environment (IDE) to help you build and debug your scripts.
Where can I get Legato?
Legato is free. The IDE and Interpreter are included in many GoFiler products, though certain GoFiler products are limited in what functions they can run (this is limited by the functionality of the software).
You can also download the Legato Interpreter for free. Certain restrictions apply for use in web applications and resale. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (585) 424-1700.
