I just wrote my first extension with the embedded python scripting. It took a couple of hours to get it perfected, but everything seems to be working well. Is there a way to have the extension loaded every time I start moneydance? I have not been able to find a mechanism to do that and have to manually run the extension everytime I run moneydance.

    As the Quotes & Exchange Rate extension has the ability to run and update prices on startup I would suggest looking at that source code to see how it can be done.

    I don’t know about Python but Java extensions are loaded at startup and called via the init() method
    And then called again by the invoke() method when you select to run it.

    I appreciate the pointers to Java extensions, but my question is specifically directed to python. Can anyone at InfiniteKind let me know if there is someplace I can put python scripts so that they will be loaded (and extension installed) on startup?
