I would like to get the list of objects on a specific layer with python. When it can be done through iterating bpy.data.objects[].layers with True value, are there any built-in ways to get what is on a layer?


There is no special property or method to retrieve all objects on a certain layer in Blender. There is a context member visible_objects, but multiple properties affect it (visibility of object, visibility of layer).

Thus, you should use a plain Python list comprehension:

objects_on_2nd_layer = [ob for ob in bpy.context.scene.objects if ob.layers[1]]
