It is possible, however the installer is supposed to do precisely those tedious tasks for you!FakeShamus wrote:I've been wondering if it might be easier to download the mac Blendigo as a simple drag and drop package that you put in a 'scripts' folder somewhere, instead of as an installer, then you just give people directions to set their scripts directory path in Blender. also, didn't there used to be a dialog at Blendigo start-up that asked where indigo was located, and had you browse to it? that seems like a good way to avoid the missing indigo installation problem.
Its also possible that I provide Blendigo as its raw source files and then tell you to move this and that there, tweak this edit that and.... well, you get the idea - it's not everyone's idea of fun
Seriously though, there is a standard blender scripts folder (~/.blender/scripts) and it is in fact fairly easy to drop Blendigo in there and have it working without even having to change the scripts directory setting in Blender. The problem on OSX is that this folder is hidden in Finder and not at all easy to get at for the average user.
The installer should be putting the files there (and it looks like it is), however writing the configuration file to specify the Indigo location seems to be massively unreliable.
Perhaps the best solution to this is to re-introduce the "set indigo path" prompt in Blendigo rather than trying to do it automatically. (However, then we also need some way to change that path when you upgrade or move the Indigo app).
The effect I want to aim for is "slick and reliable", so further discussions on this topic for what would suit you, dear end-users, would be appreciated
