Using momentum without ADS - any chance?

Hi everyone,

Just wondering if it's possible to use Momentum (MomEngine) as a stand-alone tool, without ADS. Or at least, if it's possible to do a complete Momentum run using only command-line tools.

The reason is that I have a custom layout generator and optimizer, and so want to run Momentum 100s or 1000s of times on different geometry. At the moment, I can get my layout code to write GDS, import that into ADS, press a bunch of buttons and run Momentum. If there's a way I can script that to run on lots of different GDS files without user intervention, that would be a huge plus.

Fingers crossed,
