The script building logger converts the Vitis tool GUI user actions (create and build Vitis IDE components such as AI Engine component) into equivalent Python APIs. The Python file generated by the script building logger can be used to create and build components using the Python interpreter.

The script building logger logs actions from the GUI and saves the file as builder.py. To access builder.py, follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to ViewExplorer in the Menu bar or press Ctrl+Shit+E.
    Figure 1. View → Explorer menu

  2. In the Explorer window, go to logs: builder.py. The Python interpreter creates builder.py, which logs the equivalent Python APIs for the commands used in the Vitis IDE. You can run builder.py later to automate the process.
