This page describes how to set up a personal plugin directory, that will automatically install plugins found herein. It supports single python files as well as directories which contain a __init__.py file.
This plugin is being used in the Pymol-script-repo project Pymol-script-repo.
Adding Pymol-script-repo to PyMOL search path
You should have the Pymol-script-repo directory added to your PyMOL search path. In Pymol-script-repo, is located the folder plugins, which holds the plugin to be automatically installed.
We need to import import folder Pymol-script-repo/plugins before the GUI launches. So insert import plugins into your $HOME/.pymolrc file:
For windows users
- Open notepad
- Write (Remember forward slashes)
import sys sys.path.append('C:/Users/YOURNAME/Documents/Pymol-script-repo') import plugins
Save under: C:/Users/YOURNAME/pymolrc.pym (Set: "Save as type" to "All files")
For Ubuntu/Mint users
import sys sys.path.append('/home/YOURNAME/Software/pymol/Pymol-script-repo') import plugins
Save and exit
This code has been put under version control. In the project, Pymol-script-repo.
