Scripting for UiPath


#1

Hi,
Would there be any API / Scripting in programming languages that can be done in UiPath if we do not want to use the drag drop features?

Regards

No.
It is true you can drag a code/Powershell/Autohotkey activity and run a script. But you can’t gat rid of the xaml format which it is not edit-friendly.

Thanks for the reply.
What did you mean "xaml format"
Also why isnt there an API to make it easier for developers to write workflows?

Regards

What you drag and drop (visual diagram) is saved in a text format. ([filename].xaml) You can inspect it using notepad or another text editor.

The xaml is hard to read.
Is there any frameworks / modules of mini code blocks that can be used in scripts? Any suggestions on how to do this. Have others done this before?
