PR #5131: Addon Manager Refactor

I could use some testers for the newly-refactored Addon Manager. Details in the PR. It's mostly under-the-hood changes that implement support for the new package.xml metadata file, and for preference packs, but there are a few user-interface tweaks in there as well:

Re: Run an in-memory macro as if run by MacroManager

While you're working on the addon manager, I have some ideas: Thanks for the suggestions, those are great ideas! Let me go through them a bit here: 1) Solved by relaxing the SSL requirements -- you can do this in your own copy by changing line 49 of addonmanager_utilities.py from ssl_ctx = ssl.crea...

Re: Dependencies for the 0.19.3 bugfix release

If looo doesn't jump in: I would like to see the same library versions for the different OSs. qt5.15 is not available as a conda-package. But I do not know if there are any benefits from qt 5.15 over 5.12. Qt 5.15.1 is not sufficient for Windows. During the release process for FC 0.19 I found some ...

Re: Run an in-memory macro as if run by MacroManager

Yeah, turns out my grand scheme here was doomed to failure from the start... I forgot that macros can have auxiliary files. Doh!

Run an in-memory macro as if run by MacroManager

The Addon Manager actually pulls down the full code for a macro when displaying the macro information: there is an execute button in there that allows you to run the macro, but only if it's installed. I was thinking about tweaking that a bit, given that the macro exists in memory, and allow you to r...

Adding Parts as a new type of add-on?

A few weeks ago we merged a new metadata file format for use with addons: in the current master this is only used for manually-installed Preference Packs , but I'm currently working on modifying the Addon Manager to make use of this new metadata information. In tandem with that development, we've go...

Re: Extension Manager (ExtMan)

So what I recommend is to use AddonManager until a real alternative arrives. I should also note that I'm making significant structural changes to the Add-on Manager right now, to support the new Metadata format. So bug reports and feature suggestions are welcome. Once the under-the-hood stuff is do...
