That seems hard to do in the left time. Do we need an intuitive UI like that or do you have something more generic in mind that would be better than command line usage ? You can see my current UI in my branch.

Yes, this hard to do, given that the scripts don't follow a certain format/style. We'll end up with a half-assed solution that would be even harder to work with than the actual shell invocation itself. Let's abandon this task for now(I'll take a look at what you have in your branch later) and substitute with task 2.4.2:
• Add tooltips to all UI actions that are not very self explanatory to a new comer

Do a sweep of the UI. Basically, every action, button, checkbox and line-edit should have a tooltip set.
