Adding new scripting functions using Java
Want to add new scripting functions for your jython scripts to use? Know some Java (or aren't afraid of learning new things)? This might be for you.
I've written a blog post on how easy it is to add new scripting functions to Ignition.http://ignitionprogramming.blogspot.com/2011/07/adding-scripting-functions.html
You'll need the Ignition SDK to make this work (available at the inductiveautomation.com downloads page).
If you want a quick way to get going after installing the SDK, you can also grab the playground project I created, which has all the build files and configuration already in place. http://ignitionprogramming.blogspot.com/2011/06/ignition-playground-project.html
