Separate optional grasshopper paths between R5 and R6


#1

Why are Rhino5 and Rhino6 grasshopper plugins using the same paths ? This causes trouble when some components are not fully compatible.

Suggestion: If there’s a good reason for the current strategy (identical paths), perhaps you could introduce a new settiing - the plugin path - for Rhino6, with the old Grasshopper path set as default?

It’s legacy mostly, with a layer of poor or unmade decisions.

To hide a GHA file from Rhino5, put it in the %appdata%\Grasshopper\6\Libraries\ folder.
To hide a GHA file from Rhino6, put a second file with the same name but the extension *.no6 next to it.

In an upcoming Rhino6 service release, there will be a command called _GrasshopperIgnorePlugin which automatically places that no6 file next to plugins you don’t want, but for the time being you have to do it manually.

That’s absolutely OK for now, it solves my current conflicts.
