Haiku's GUI is in principle entirely scriptable. You can change a window's position and size and manipulate pretty much every widget in it. The tool to do this is hey. It sends BMessages to an application, thus emulating what happens if the user clicks on a menu, checkbox, or other widgets.

Isn't a scriptable GUI also the goal of KDE Plasma? You have to use QML though.

Haiku has had Hey for years, I remember playing with it in the alpha 1/2 days. Maybe KDE should hurry the f*** up.

What?

KDE Plasma already exists and you can write stuff for it in QML.
