This list is great, thanks so much for putting this together!
Though, I really wish we could just have an integrated addon manager or something where creators could upload all in one place that would update automatically as creators update their addons, install correctly automatically, and sync between different computers (via a profile or something).
I don’t wish to discuss this here, I made a RCS post about it. Comment and upvote or whatever there:
@Penguinburger1 I would love to implement a proper add-on management system in Blender Depot (a platform I recently built) as I see this as a really important facet towards the growing development community.
Users would be able to browse and batch install add-ons in Blender (which Blender Depot currently handles), but on top of that, also auto update the add-ons to the latest version as the developer releases an update on the platform.
Although the costs of managing this would be difficult, we can possibly start in a small scale and see how users feel about it.
I would love to know the thoughts of other users and developers.
Hi, I have ported the Propeller Addon to 2.80, I’m not the creator, the author is Alain PORET, I created an icon for the addon but I don’t know how insert the code for the icon, perhaps someone can help with this.
Not sure if it does anything special, But 2.8 has window>new window which can be used as floating workspace.
Just use OS specific “always on top” on that window and make the 3d view only by pressing ctrl+space in 3d view
Advanced UI Menus
I just updated my addon to add a blender 2.8 version.
It provides context sensitive menus, user customizable menus, a floating collection manager, and various other UI/UX elements to make your workflow easy and fast.
