Re: [Gimp-developer] New asset / extension manager

Ouch, so the "Gimp extension format" is already 2 years old...

Joao, yes I'm aware of some plugin that did this job. Is it somewhere on
the web or in public repository?

I would like to help with something, but entire thing is either frozen or
done privately.

I know (and I was multiple times told) that Gimp devs are not employees in
some corporate and they are doing things in their spare time, but there are
some things that should be IMHO more open, like

- project goals - what's the result of the project (e.g. extension file
format and it's integration to gimp, desktop client, server backend, Web
- analysis - what's already done, what needs to be done (like details of
the project goals,...), some interface specs,...
- GUI drafts

This would IMHO help a lot.

Nobody says this all must be done by core devs - well only 1st point
(project goals) and following moderation of the project.

No progress -
But I've been talking to Americo over the last 2-3 weeks to start some
movement on that direction.

I had some work done in 2018, but it was a Python 2 plug-in with
requirements for a server-side API -
maybe I will revisit some of that

I did not even know about this extension format in the ChangeLog you
pointed. It certainly will be useful.

Huh, just found some info on gitlab, but not sure, how old it is (those
commit messages are not very descriptive):

- New extension format support (.gex a.k.a. GIMP Extension) which is
    an archive containing various supported data. So far, it can
    package: brushes, MyPaint brushes, dynamics, patterns, gradients,
    palettes, tool presets, plug-ins, splash images and themes.
  - New extension manager allowing to enable, disable or uninstall
    installed extensions, with a dialog available in `Edit > Manage

I will dig in...

And you haven't even got a bus right now :)
