There is sfdisk for scripting - I have used it in custom installers 10+
years ago. parted is also scriptable - in fact, parted is only usable
with some frontend (script or GUI like gparted) that calculates your
partition starts and sizes.

Wel, I like the new versions because of better usability in scripts.
One line per interface, for example.
