fxT_shareNodes v1.7


Tool to share nodes between users on the same network right from inside nuke.
Users can share nodes by the click of a button. Other users can then go and grab these shared scripts.


Users can share up to 10 files (older files will be removed to avoid filling the server with unlimited files)
When the user grabs any shared nodes from another user, they will get the latest created one by date.
The limit of sharing 10 files is just so that if you know you shared something a bit ago but shared something else later,
you can go back to the folder and find what you shared (small safe buffer for the artists).


To grab something someone shared, you just pick the user from a dropdown menu, and then you can paste it in your nodegraph
(when picking the user from the dropdown, the shared file-path gets copied to the clipboard)

The user folders, are created when someone shares a set of nodes, iuser-name is grabbed from the system, so no need to
manually set up folder structures for the vaious users. All of theis is automated, all you need to make sure of is to set the correct path, and that all users have access to this folder.



Happy Sharing!



 fxt ShareNodes v1.4



v1.5 - v1.7: Minor fixes for compatability with python3 and nuke13

v1.4: Major update. Multiple users allowed, auto setup of user folders, update directy inside of nuke and grab any shared nodes
from a list of all users that have shared nodes. Fixed issue where nodes were pasted where they were previously save. Now the nodes you grab 
from other users will be pasted in the correct loaction in your nuke script.

v1.3: Version with just 1 file being overwritten by all users




Detailed step-by-step install notes are listed in the top of the Python file.
IMPORTANT: Edit line 89 in the python script. This is where you set the path to the folder where users shared nukescrips will be created. PS: This forlder needs to have (read,write,delete) previliges for the users. 

copy the python file into your .nuke directory/fxT_tools, or where you choose to install the tool)

Put this in your menu.py file:

import fxT_shareNodes

put this in your init.py file (only suggested paths, choose the path where you install the files):

hello! great tool!
but it does one thing that I'd like to change and I don't know how, and that's that when I take the nodes, Nuke puts them in the same position as where they were taken from

Hey Ruben,

Thank you for the input. I just rewrote the entire tool to allow for multiple users and grabbing shared files from any users that have shared any nodes. The issue you described was a little annoying yes, the way its rewritten now this issue should be gone.

Hope this works for you, happy sharing!
