This is a backdrop node add-on* python script  that helps you to manage Backdrop Colors(using Adobe Color themes files[*.ase]), Icons & Position/Size Eassiiillllyyy. After installed, you just need to create a regular backdrop node as you would normally do and you will see new features added to it.(╹◡╹)  ** added nuke 11 support **

001. You can precisely position your backdrop node(backdrop position parameters exposed):

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

002. Change Background Color with just one click:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

003. Change Color Palette whenever you want to (yes! it will remember your last selected theme...yes..yes...good.. good):

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

004. You can download more palettes from Adobe Color CC website( 4 free, u just need to create an Adobe user ). You don't even need to restart nuke after it, once a .ase file is in the '/themes' folder(you can use the 'open palettes folder' button to find it) it will auto update the dropdown list:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

005. Fetch and add several icons to your backdrop by just typing a few letters(just like using nuke's node graph):

01 - Download this Script using the grey “download” button then extract the contents.

02- Copy contents into your home directory’s “.nuke” folder.
- Linux: /home/[login name]/.nuke
- Mac OS X: /Users/[login name]/.nuke
- Windows: C:\Users\[user name]\.nuke

03 - If the destination folder already contains a “menu.py” file, open it in a text editor and append the contents.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*(it's not really a gizmo, it's just a python knob added on top of a nuke's backdrop node, so nothing will break if you need to pass your .nk file to someone else. - ♥‿♥)

hey Marcelo,
I just added all your contents folder and I get an error message
"menu.py: error interpreting this plugin"
I've removed my menu.py file and just keep yours.

Hello Stephanie,
I tried to emulate your error here( on a pc and a mac ), but couldn't find that issue. Are u running nuke on a Linux? BTW, this tool is not working on nuke 11 yet(don't have it yet to fix/test). Any additional info about your error would help me a lot.
Thanks.

Hey Marcelo,
Thanks for your answer.
I'm using Nuke 11 .. So that's probably why it's not working (yet)
 
 
# Marcelo F. Bortolini 2018-02-12 17:43
Script updated to Nuke 11(pyside2).

Really cool, I download Node Helpers from your github to have all the package.

The only problem I found is that you remove the Z Order so we can't organize de layering of backdrops.
 
 
# Marcelo F. Bortolini 2018-02-26 14:38
Hello Jonathan, Glad you like it and hope it will help you. regarding the zOrder u are right, it's not on the Backdrop's "Backdrop tab" but you still can find it on the "Node" Tab(which is the "original" backdrop tab. I can/will propagate that to my tab in a near future(i forgot bc it's something that I rarely use). Thanks for this feedback.

Oh cool, my bad I didn't see the node tab.
Thanks for your fast reply !
