Is there a way to modify scenes programatically?

For example, I incorrectly named a bunch of nodes, is there a way to rename them all with a script?

A repl for the editor would be really cool actually …

Sure, just load your scene and do your changes on an instance of it. Then you can save it back to the disk resource using

Short example:

var scene_path = "res://my_scene.tscn"
var scene = load(scene_path)
var root = scene.instance()
for node in root.get_children():
scene.pack(root), scene)

Even though the OP didn’t say thanks I’d like to. That’s great help for something I’m facing at present.
