HPaste/HCollections

Recommended Posts

Hi people!

Wanted to share a small pipeline tool that helps much sharing node setups through chats and forums

Here it is: https://github.com/pedohorse/hpaste

the core is HPaste, when you press the shelf tool or shortcut ( Ctrl+Shift+Alt+C in NodeEditor by default) - it basically saves selected nodes as text, compresses it and uploads to one/several of online anonymous text clipboards, leaving you with a fancy small link, like this W4a2yx8TSvsQUdcO@WePaste in the clipboard, that you can paste in any messenger. Oh, and by default it also transfers nonstandard HDAs within the snippet.

The one who received the link has just to copy it to his clipboard and wither press "HPasteWeb" on the shelf, or, much more convenient, press the shortcut ( Ctrl+Shift+Alt+V in NodeEditor by default)

The links are expiring according to the web clipboard server's rules, that makes it useless to store these links for more than a week or two though.

Here's a bit more text about it

The HCollections is an extention of HPaste, it allows you to save your favorite node snippets into your github account (you just need to create an empty account if you don't have one) and have access to them through an analogue of the Tab menu.

Also it allows you to create public items that anyone who add your collection(account name) to their list, will be able to access. You can change the access type any time as well.

very handy to keep all your presets (and hdas as well, since they are stored within the snippet) in a "cloud".

Here's an "article" about it with pictures

I have a little plan where to develop this stuff: adding categories/subfolders for items, adding an easy way to temporary enable/disable some public collections , stuff like that.

 

So I'm interested to know what do you think, shall i continue with it, or it needs much changes or what? I know some people found it very useful, but i'm still not sure it's fulfilling the public needs.
