Description

Adding the ability to run custom python functions in the print-composer export process would allow for additional automation of workflow.

For instance, I have a 200+ page atlas for print. When exporting I also need to update an online database and upload the exported PDF. I would love the ability to use a python script to grab the file that was just exported, upload it, and run some mySQL updates via python as well.

So to summarize, I would like an option to run custom python before or after export.
If running after, an api that provided access to the file that was just exported and the atlas feature data would be useful.
