I would really like macros, but I hope there wont be YASL (yet another scripting language). So why not use Python? I believe people would love this!

YES! Python would be cool!
It should be the first choice.

I think exporting all functions to a COM model would be sufficient. This way all scripting languages could call TC functions, if they support COM or at least DLL late binding.

I'd really like to see macros, and I think it's a feature suitable for the TC core. That might help for a cleaner, more flexible design.

A design I'd like to see is to keep pretty much the entire UI intact with the Preferences dialog, *but* with a new feature under the "Misc." options where you define hotkeys. Instead of just adding one command like those built-in cm_* commands, let a user call a custom function. It could use the very same text field.

Next, have a button there for a function/script designer (or it could just open something like Notepad, hehe), and what you add into that Command text field could now be not just the cm_* commands, but also the same as a function that's called in a script.

As for which language -- oh I don't really care much... I'd like to be able to call cm_* commands from within the script though, and have functions with parameters, to for example set pane widths from a script.

That was actually what brought me here -- I'd like one key in TC to expand the thumbnail view to give it a bit extra room at the cost of the other panel, and restore it again once I return to the regular list view. Smile That's an example of a macro that would ideally only need two lines -- one to call a function to set pane widths, and another to switch view mode in the focused list.
