RenderPal V2 PyQuery - Python query library

Post by Shoran Support » 22 Jan 2011, 22:16

Since RenderPal V2 2.5, the console Remote Controller can be used to query data from the server. We have now written a lightweight Python wrapper for the console RC that can be used to easily query the server; instead of having to deal with the returned XML data, the PyQuery library will return easy-to-use Python objects that hold various attributes representing the returned data. Besides being a handy script for pipeline integration, it's also a good example, inspiration and base for your own scripts.

The PyQuery library can be freely downloaded here:

A comprehensive Readme.txt is included in the archive that explains everything you need to know. You will need an installation of the command-line remote controller (at least version 2.5.0) and a Python installation or Python host application.

This is an early version and only offers a rather rudimentary functionality. Feel free to post your ideas and comments in this thread.

It would be cool, if the PyQuery library would parse the RenderSet correctly so one could use it directly . Perhaps you could also setup a mercurial/git/svn repository to make this some kind of community project (maybe the submitters also??)
