Wing scripts in a django project

I want to write a script to help me do some automation jobs in a django project. There is a model named "Post", I can use the code below to get all the fields:

from . import models

print(models.Post._meta.fields)

How can I use the code in a wing script? I wish I can access the django repl to get the data and use them back in the script. For example:

s = make_useful_string(models.Post._meta.fields)

insert_text(s)

Another possibly cleaner way is to write your script as a stand-alone tool that can be run on the command line and outputs the results you need. Then use the AsyncExecute* or ExecuteCommandLine methods on the CAPIApplication in the scripting API to call it and read its output. That way you don't have to match Python version, etc.

You may be able to import models by adding directories to sys.path (probably the parent directory of the package models is in and the paths that Django needs) and then importing the module. The code would need work with the version of Python that Wing uses internally (Python 3.9 in Wing 8) and you'd need to restart Wing when your code changes.
