Although the extensions platform alpha release is finished there are still a few tasks we want to tackle before 4.2 Beta.

Show-stoppers

Blender:

  • Extensions Update
    • Show Available Updates on status bar #120610
    • First time dialogs and setups #120665
  • Handle add_ons core preferences #121830
  • Update Listing automatically when visiting Preferences > Extensions
  • Support "secret" option for remote repositories to pass access tokens to servers.
    See !121856.
  • Pass 'platform' as part of the query infrastructure/extensions-website#74
  • --disable-remote-repositories (up to debate whether we want this or a --disable-check-for-updates / --offline-mode).
    See PR !121994.

Server-side:

Documentation:

  • Provide guidance for where extensions should store presets (existing conventions for add-ons may not make sense).
  • Create a task with all 4.1 add-ons and their status (checkbox if tested, comment if not working)
  • Update user manual add-ons part + remove refences to extensions being experimental and 4.2.
  • Update https://developer.blender.org/docs/
  • Release Notes needs love.

Management

  • Pipeline to update extensions.

  • Zero the awaiting review track.

  • Review the auto-updated add-ons #121855

  • Create a task with all 4.1 add-ons and their status (checkbox if tested, comment if not working) #121855

Bugs to investigate/fix

  • Dragging to install an extension from a disabled repository fails silently #120303
  • Renaming a module should rename the directory.
  • The preset operator uses eval() to apply a preset, therefore if you use __package__ it returns the package where the operator lives. Document how this can be solved.
  • Search should include extension author and maintainer.
  • We still have warnings on the User Preferences (as oppose to use Blender notification):

Good to have

Blender:

  • The undocumented (advanced) Online Local Repositories should point to a .json, not to a folder.
  • Add-ons bundle
    • Add-ons legacy bundle (single .zip)
    • Install Legacy Add-on.
    • Get snapshot from .git before add-ons became read-only.

Python side-projects:

  • API for screen-casting

Archived (done) tasks

  • Show add-ons specific permissions on Blender. e0b47f78e8
  • Local cache still stores .zip files. (blender/blender-addons-contrib@a1b0f1b1f4)
  • Disabling "Local Cache" should remove local cache when running an update. (blender/blender-addons-contrib@a1b0f1b1f4)
  • Removing an extension should remove it's local cache. (blender/blender-addons-contrib@a1b0f1b1f4)
  • Add-ons fail to enable silently when installed from disk (e.g., visibility handler).
  • Investigate why visibility handler doesn't work as extension (it works if you Install as Legacy Add-on).
  • Investigate why Co doesn't work as extension (it works if you extract the .py and Install as Legacy Add-on).
  • Installing an Extension via dragging has no feedback #119500
  • Custom directory potential issue #119481 (f64f3e8524)
  • Stop with the bl_info warning (0b13d1f31a).
  • Extensions UI still showing even when Developers Extra is disabled (0d2c4df346).
  • Uninstalling a theme extension should remove it #120289
  • Mode "Show Development Utilities" to its own Experimental Flag.
  • Filter option to show only Update Available #120609
  • Splashscreen and Available Extensions Update #120612
  • Repository option to "Check for Updates on Startup" #120613
  • Unify install from disk (installing legacy add-on should go via install from disk as well).
  • Archive addons_contribs (wait with this… ).
  • Open devtalk Beta feedback thread.
  • Support for bundling wheels (.whl) in packages #119681
