Is Yak intended to replace the Rhino Installer Engine for plugins?

… or are they intended to work together, and if so, how? Can one wrap an rhi file into a yak package?

Yes, we hope that yak will eventually replace RHI. We know there are plenty of existing RHIs out there, so we can’t just drop support for RHI installs. I wouldn’t recommend creating new RHIs moving forward.

An RHI is a renamed zip file. If you rename the rhi to zip and unzip it, you can follow the instructions for creating a yak package from these resources at

I see, thx
