Hello everybody,

I'm new to CityEngine, I started playing around with the python scripting interface. I was wondering if it is possible to use the same python scripting interface and CE functionalities from outside CityEngine, so without starting the application GUI. I would like to just run my scripts automatically from a Unix console, on a computer where I installed CE. Is that possible? Is there any ready-to-use interface for that?
My final goal is that of completely automatize the process of downloading GIS info from OSM, creating my 3D city and exporting it, without using the CE GUI.
