UXP Scripting manual

Help of InDesign says 

 

UXP Scripting
Scripting in InDesign is now powered with the Unified Extensibility Platform (UXP) so that you can use modern JavaScript (ES5 and most of the ES6 features) to automate tasks. Find out more information about UXP Scripting https://developer.adobe.com/indesign/uxp/ 

 

And this link goes nowhere. Is there some manual about new scripting?

Docs are probably being created by now regarding the Github page:

https://github.com/AdobeDocs/uxp-indesign

Most of the entries are only a few days left and mostly WIP.

There was a page with sample but it's not unavalaible. My guess is that is was released too soon 😉

https://github.com/AdobeDocs/uxp-indesign/tree/main/src/pages/uxp-scripting-samples

Apart from that, you can have a look at UXP Scripting with Photoshop and try to build from there by analogy.

Hi @Geоrge,

 

Thank you for highlighting the issue with the scripting help article link not working. We've highlighted the concern to the content team, who will be working on it on priority basis.

Be sure that if they had manuals already available, you would have them already. Being part of the prerelease on that topic, I can't warranty there weren't any super extra guides hidden to the public 🙂 It will soon come for sure.
