I would like to execute the Curves And Lines add in from my Python script.

Is there any interface for working with add-in inside of a Python script?

    It sounds like you want to use tools from the add-in inside your own script, rather than the entire add-in, is that correct? If you run each tool manually you should be able to get a Python Snippet from the geoprocessing history and use those as a basis for calling each tool from within your script. – Midavalo Nov 1 '18 at 21:52
  • Yes that is exactly what I want to do. I will try that when I'm back in the office. – Squanchy Nov 2 '18 at 14:29

You do not say where you wish to run your Python script but, in any event, since Python AddIns only work from within ArcMap I think the approach you should take is to absorb the code from that addin into your own addin.

From the help for the pythonaddins module:

The pythonaddins module can only be used within a Python add-in. It cannot be used in stand-alone scripts or geoprocessing script tools.
