Open, Parse, and Close a Text File

I suppose you might be able to do this now with external Javascript? Would be handy to do it natively.

Specifically It’d be great to be able to open the file, parse the text, and assign text from the file to Text variables.

@NoBones I have been thinking about this feature for a while but giving users the ability to mess with files and folders could lead to unwanted results that they can’t undo too.
maybe I will add a limited version of this feature (only import specific file to the project, and maybe read text files to a variable or json and maybe write too).

I guess you can do that (but the external JavaScript code can’t access the variables and vice versa, you can connect them through the project somehow, maybe create a comp with the information).
