RoboFont can be used from the command line. You just need to install the command line tool in the Preferences Window.

The command line tool has a simple API:

roboFont [-h] [-p] [-c] [-o]
--help -h show options
--pythonpath -p <path> <path> ... .py files path(s) to run inside RoboFont
--pythoncode -c "print(5*5") Python code to run inside RoboFont
--openfile -o <path> files to open with RoboFont
