Hello Frank,

does this system work in an enviroment with a common gizmo repository on a share, too?

Have a nice day!

Hi Achim,

yes. You can set the environment variable called NKPD_REPO_PATH and point it to a shared directory on your network. nuBridge will then utilise that rather than ~/Nukepedia

This will not replace your existing shared tool repo, but you can set it up to run along side it.

Have a look at the user manual for some more info (though I probably need to update that as well).

Hi Frank,
First of all congratulations to you on release of nukepdia. I have been waiting for this more than 2 years.
Its very useful for people like me who are always scared to go into programming. Although when i am installing its giving me error saying "Below files could not be installed automatically please go to download area & install them manually.
could you please let me know whats i am doing wrong here.

Hi Anshul,
thanks for the kind words. Yes, I have been trying to get this done for many years now so am quite happy it's been released into the wild.
The message you ares seeing appears when a download cannot be installed automatically because it is not apparent how it should be installed. Currently only .gizmo and .nk files can be installed automatically. There is no way of procedurally telling how python scripts, zip files etc should be prepared for Nuke to use them without looking and interpreting the contents.
I very much than we will see a package manager fr nuke to standardise how tools should be packaged for Nuke to be able to auto-install anything. With such a standard in place I would then be able to make nuBridge install many more files automatically.
I definitely intend to keep improving the installer to be able to install more tools automatically, but without the above mentioned standard it's impossible in some cases.
