KnobScripter was designed as a simple python script editor for Nuke, and its main goal is to let you interact with Nuke’s python API in a more pleasant way than Nuke’s default methods. It doesn’t intend to replace a fully featured IDE, but it proves enough for most common python tasks and quick work with snippets, basically anything that needs quick interaction with Nuke’s python console.

 

With this in mind, I focused its development in the aspects that I love about IDEs regarding efficiency (such as syntax helpers), in covering everything the default Script Editor in Nuke currently offers, and last but not least, in covering the python aspects of Nuke that are generally tedious, such as adding python or blink code to nodes/knobs.

Main Features

Full scripting mode for .py files.

You can create, browse, modify or toggle between python files and folders.

Node editing mode

You can script directly on python buttons or callback knobs, as well as BlinkScript.

Snippets

Snippets are short codes you can assign to longer pieces of code, so that by writing the short code and pressing tab you’ll get the long code.

You can also choose where you’ll want your cursor to appear with the convenient $$.

Code Gallery

The Code Gallery is a new way to store and browse through codes that you might want to revisit many times as reference.

It includes a basic system of archiving. Then you can quickly browse and sort through the different codes you saved, while folding categories and reading descriptions.
