[BUG] GHPY files crash Rhino/Grasshopper on macOS?


GHPY files don’t seem to be a supported add-on format for mac users!?
I’ve encountered the filetype a few times with different Grasshopper plugins (MeshSync, Chimpanzee, etc.) over the last few months.
When these files are put inside the Grasshopper Components Folder, the application mostly crashes on restart.

Is this a bug? What exactly are these filetypes? What’s the difference between a UserObject written in IronPython and a GHPY file?

GHPY files are GhPython Components compiled into an assembly. See this thread for more info.

Can’t say if this is a bug or if GHPY is not intended to be used on mac. Maybe @piac can help here :slight_smile:

Seems to be a Windows exclusive! Thanks for the link.

I’ve noted the request here: RH-50715.
