We’ve been making great use of tk-multi-publish2 over the last year or so using it for all kinds of publishes as it’s plugin workflow makes extension easier. One thing that we’re currently doing is using the publish UI for submitting jobs to the farm (as this means we can easily include scene publish and other downstream publish operations all as one). This is working great except that the UI doesn’t always lend itself to a particular task.
So we’ve started moving over to using the tk-multi-publish2 API to run the publishes in headless mode so we can make whatever UI we want (or put the UI into a node). The big thing that we miss is the validation progress widget. I think it would be really nice to expose some of the UI components from the app so that you can easily reuse certain components in your particular workflow.
I noticed that publish_tree_widget is now available by running publish_app.import_module(‘tk_multi_publish2’).publish_tree_widget but not sure whether that was intentional. Also it doesn’t seem obvious how to set this up and you need a few other widgets that aren’t exposed.
I’m currently having to reimplement the progress handler and then pass the logger into the manager when creating it.
Any suggestions on other workarounds?
