It’s finally time to get some feedback on this project that I have been incubating (between distractions) for the last two years… For starters I’ve invited a few developers/users who I feel could really get their teeth into this.
I’ve pushed some preliminary documentation to http://developer.rhino3d.com/wip/guides/yak. Please have a read and a play and let me know your thoughts! I’m here to answer any questions if anything doesn’t make sense.
Some things you can try…
- Create a package from one of your Grasshopper plug-ins
- Push a package to the server (you’ll need your Rhino Account for this)
- Install a package
- Try the package restore functionality in Grasshopper
- Test the Yak CLI tool
Yak 0.2 is focused on Grasshopper plug-in packages and the “package restore” functionality in Grasshopper. The next release will focus more on packaging Rhino (.rhp) plug-ins – it works but it needs some attention.
One last note… Yak is designed to be cross-platform, but right now only the hooks into Rhino WIP for Windows are implemented.
