Been wondering what is the best recommended route for writing GH components for distribution on F4R, want the components to run on R5 and R6. Currently using Python and compiling .ghpy components in R6, but those won’t work in R5. Will R5 have a SR to facilitate GH reading those .ghpy components ?
I have been avoiding writing RhinoCommon since the amount of code to be written is a whole lot compared to Python. For me the easiest transition from VB would be .Net. Please excuse my ignorance as I am a beginner in programming and I lack some important knowledge I guess.
I need a solid way for creating a GH component, and the .ghpy for now seems very troublesome due to the different behaviour of the RS methods in PY and GHPY, also would prefer to write relatively high level.
Is .Net a good start for me, what about future proofing ? What Visual Studio is enough ? 10 would work for R6 ? Can I keep writing in Python and hope that .ghpy will become a solid option for quick writing ? If there is no plan to have R5 use those .ghpy components than I have to move to another method.
