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.
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.
Oo, generic errors, my favourite kind of exception.
Did you change the file path to a valid folder on your machine?
_GrasshopperUnloadPlugin was removed because it was causing a lot of nasty side-effects. There a new command (hidden for now) called _GrasshopperReloadAssemblies. It only reloads those assemblies that were COFF loaded and leaves the rest of GH intact. You cannot have any files open though when running it.
One of the inputs of the Draw Image component is a filepath which tells the component where to save the image to. At the moment I perform no checking at all to see if the folder even exists or if there’s perhaps already a file there that has been locked by some other process.
