Rhino.Compute: Galapagos from Server

Hi there,

I was wondering if anybody has tried to link / run Galapagos (or any other optimisation solver) through a Rhino.Compute sever application.

Any insight regarding this topic would be really helpful.

Many thanks


This probably won’t work with how we’ve developed compute as a stateless system. That being said, you are free to develop another method of solving GH definitions on compute that would start solving and let you know when the solution is complete.

You have a few challenges:

  • Starting Galapagos programmatically
  • Having Galapagos / GH let you know when Galapagos is finished.
  • Writing a set of compute endpoints (for example: /solverStart, /solverStatus) that let you start the solver, and another that lets you check the status of your solve job.

There might be other solvers that do allow more programmatic control.
