JavaScript is powerful as seen in what is done with SublimeText.

SublimeText uses Python for plugins.

-1 for AppleScript becauses it's platform dependent and as such is a bad idea.

I agree. Applescript would be a very bad choice. Either Javascript (wich is really becoming bigger and bigger, because there are so many developers working on it everyday and the language is becoming better really fast now) or Python (less people are using it, but clean language and being used in other graphics software like Blender), although I prefer Javascript

If it was the only choice, it would be. However, AppleScript supports Javascript, Python, & shell scripts, so as an additional option for Macs it would not be a bad idea, & probably easy to include.

Yes, for Mac user only. How about Windows user?

I don't know enough about Windows to say if there would be an AppleScript equivalent or what it would be. I only suggested additional support for AppleScript for Macs because I suspect (but am far from sure) that if Python, Javascript, or similar support was added to the Affinity apps in the future, it would be easy to support AppleScript as well. That's because AppleScript on Macs (actually inter-application communication, more or less) is extensible & the basic frameworks for Python & Javascript are already there.
