The Maya Python package provides a Maya plugin and a Python package that together enable a user to write scripts or plugins in the Python programming language instead of MEL or C++. The Maya plugin defines two new MEL commands that allow executing Python source code given as a string or a file. The Python package provides access to all MEL functions and to the Maya C++ SDK which enables a Python program to access and manipulate data within Maya.
