Blender Tools

For developer tools we have a separate Git Repository.

This is to be used to keep tools which are not needed for building Blender but developers may find useful.

  • Utility scripts for running checks on code for style, spelling.
  • Utility scripts for code-base analysis, creating credits for eg.
  • Configurations for 3rd party applications, IDE's.
  • Any tools we develop specifically for working with Blender.

Repository Overview

  • ./check_source/check_style_c.py - style checker.
    Depends on pygments Python module.
  • ./check_source/check_spelling.py - spell checker.
    Depends on enchant Python module.
  • ./config/ide - style configuration for QtCreator and Eclipse.
  • ./utils/uncrustify.cfg - configuration for Uncrustify style checker.
    http://uncrustify.sourceforge.net
  • ./utils/blender_update_themes.py - run to add new fields into existing XML themes.
  • ./utils/make_cursor_gui.py - simple paint program to create pixmap cursors for wm_cursors.c
  • ./utils/make_gl_stipple_from_xpm.py - Converter from 32x32 XPM images to a GL-Stipple array, typically for glutil.c
  • ./utils/trailing_space_clean.py - Strip trailing space of source files maintained by in our repo.

Setting Up the Repo
