The basic script writer's toolbox

utils build badge

Description

This plugin provides a series of procedures to facilitate some scripting tasks, including some basic features that are inexplicably missing from the scripting API (toLower, toUpper, split, ...).

The plugin also includes methods for:

  • batch renaming of objects in the Objects list
  • safely creating temporary files and directories
  • free manipulation of date strings
  • safely running dubious code (as in a try/catch block)
  • smart and customisable tracing and logging of a script's progress

Requirements

  • None
