Quickly de-install / re-install an addon for updating it's code?

Hello, is there a way to quickly update the code of your addon to blender ?
i way thinking of doing the uninstall then reinstall the same addon with an automation. something like that should surely exist isnt it ?

You talking refresh so Blender sees the changes to code?

yes.
(of course the refresh button don’t actually refresh addon codes…)

Honestly the best way to do it is to write a script that unregisters all of the classes, reloads the python modules, and then re-registers the classes. After that you just press a button.

okay im going to write a script then.
it could be so much easier if sublime have a link to blender…

Be the guy who writes one :slight_smile:
