algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Freighter bundles Grasshopper definitions and dependencies to create a standalone "app" for sharing with other designers
So it prompts you to download dependencies?
Thanks Gregory. The way it works is a little different...the component groups come from the person who is distributing their definition. So, say you have written a definition using some third-party plug-ins on your machine, and you want to distribute it, to your colleagues or perhaps for a workshop. When you build your "freight" it reads your definition and copies all of the dependencies for the third-party plug-in into a folder for distribution. Part of that folder is an executable that does the steps outlined previously. So it's more of a push than a pull, but the end result is the same.
Very useful, especially the "instals and unblocks new component groups" - so it will download third party plugins? Would be nice if GH did this as standard...
Very cool and very useful (and know I know what you have been doing lately)
Isn't Will Pearson working on sth similar?
Or even, a "supertanker": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYLKouOCwLY ;)
great stuff. collaboration one step further.
i keep imagining and wishing this approach even without the use of rhino_gh (impossible for reasons as stated in many threads)
At Proving Ground we've put together a new Rhino + GH app that allows you to package up your definitions and Rhino files into an executable that you can distribute to users. It identifies all third-party applications associated with a definition, and copies them into a resource folder that is part of the "freight." The executable:
We are currently beta testing it, with a goal of making it open source...if you're interested, you can sign up here.
