An Online Plug-in IDs Database

RuudLRuudL Posts: 66

This project has been on the back-burner for a long time. A couple of weeks ago I added a 'About'-page, that also functions as a 'Splash screen'. It explains how to use the database, where the data comes from and what it's used for.

It is hosted at SourceForge and accessible thru this link: Carrara Plugin IDs database .

It's mine intention to post all the elements of the website at a later time. Along with the Python program, that I used to extract the IDs from the plugins.

Let me know what you think of it. Your feedback is much appreciated and it will encourage me to improve this database.

    Yes, I have seen that. I did post the last entry in that discussion. It motivated me to build this online database. In its current state not all plugins are included. Only the plugins that are installed on my computer and I do not have Alberto's plugins yet. I will update the database in the future with data from new or updated plugins.

    With the Python program, that I intent to release, it's possible to extract the IDs on your own computer. Using Python buildin webserver you can run the database website local. The data from the plugins on your computer can also be used as an update to the online database. But that function ( import, diff, remove duplicates, load, documentation ) is still a work-in-progress.
