I wrote a tool to automate taking screenshots of widgets!

It took me a couple of days, but with the compositor running in headless mode, screenshots can even be taken from CI! No more fiddling with a VM and spending hours in GIMP to make screenshots in various languages for Metadata Cleaner's help pages.

I have to say that of all the publishing platforms I use (Amazon, Apple, Kobo), Apple's is the most cumbersome. They require you to use two different web portals to manage and update your books.
