Re: Win32 compilation for kicad scripting


Hi all,

Blender might be one to look at (but a couple other data points are encouraged also). Blender is heavily dependent on python, and has extremely tight scripting integration. Does it run on Windows? If so, something could be learned about what are they doing for the poor Windows users.

Before Blender 2.5, it was required to install a full python distribution and then you had to set up some environment variables.

Now Python is provided within Blender installation, AFAIK. All required Python Modules are in Blender install folder: [...]Blender_2.5\.blender\python\lib

I have not used Blender for a long time, but I remember the environment solution as a pain. In Blender forums "how to set PYTHONPATH" was a recurrent newbie question.

Hope this helps,
