KiCad files are simple text files that can be manipulated by anything that can read and write files. Such tools typically require the affected KiCad files not to be loaded at this point in time. A good example for such standalone tools are library asset generator and test scripts like the ones used for the official library https://github.com/pointhi/kicad-footprint-generator, https://github.com/KiCad/kicad-library-utils. Or even things that manage the kicad config like the colour theme loader https://github.com/pointhi/kicad-color-schemes
