2.0 - added optional argumebt to use last or first selected node as the axis for mirroring
     - mirror is animated to keep track of nodes
     - the required menu entries are included in teh module now so the local menu.py only needs this line: import mirrorNodes

1.1 - corrected resulting positions and made undo work

Mirrors the nodes in the node graph to quickly rearrange portions of the DAG.

example menu.py entry (included in v2.0):

menuBar = nuke.menu('Nuke')
menuBar.addCommand('Edit/Node/Mirror/horizontally', 'mirrorNodes.mirrorNodes( nuke.selectedNodes(), direction='x' )', 'alt+ctrl+x')
menuBar.addCommand('Edit/Node/Mirror/vertically', 'mirrorNodes.mirrorNodes( nuke.selectedNodes(), direction='y' )', 'alt+ctrl+y')

for v2.0 simply put this in your menu.py:
    import mirrorNodes



I map things like this to hotkeys and hide them in that ridiculously deep sub menu:mirrorNodes_02

only issue is the undo doesn't work on it.
# Frank Rueter 2011-05-18 21:55
oops, indeed. it's fixed now. v1.1 also calculates the proper node centres, before it was using their positions which went very wrong when backdrops were involved. thanks for letting me know.

This script flip all the node from right to left, top to bottom,
what if we want the last node select to be the axis of this flip.
# Frank Rueter 2017-07-06 21:42
That could be done. Currently it uses the average position to determine the axis.
I'm pretty busy at the moment but will try and look into it.

Thanks for speedy response.
# Frank Rueter 2017-07-07 05:46
np. I assume by "last node" you mean the bottom most node, not the node that was selected last?
# Prabhamrit Singh 2017-07-07 06:08
The node that was selected last.
# Prabhamrit Singh 2017-07-07 06:20
The node that was selected last

makes sense, will have a look
+1 # Frank Rueter 2017-07-07 06:55
