I had some fun over the weekend - it was supposed to be a one day project, but it can easily spiral out of control, so i’m doing it’s postmortem now so i stop fiddling with it.
So, a bit of history: almost two years ago, i had a crack at making some “cloud components” for grasshopper. They were basically nodejs express endpoints that were defining a method, and were invoked async-ish by gh.
Then compute came out - and i was like dude i have to do this with compute! Well, i also managed to make my own rhino-bound rhinocommon server
rhino compute competitor. That and some “reflective” GH components that invoke those methods either on a remote server, a local one, or in memory.
Anyway, there’s a longer README in the project’s repo: https://github.com/didimitrie/SuperStomper
Be warned, the code is mess. It’s literally just a couple of days’ work, really unpolished, but rather rich in takeaways, and i would push some of this stuff in the GH2 category, but I guess that will have to wait until compute is public.
