And yet… If they are called Scripts, they still work just as effectively.
For what its worth, the majority of our clients refer to them as scripts, and i usually do as well. Just the same as some folks call Revit Families “Components,” or “Objects,” or (even worse) “Parts,” which is confusing because Revit actually has a Part command, and also because Catia has Parts. All that to say, it really isnt a slant or a slight, to call them Graphs.
Interestingly enough, if you look up the Definition of a “Graph,” (a diagram showing the relation between variable quantities, typically of two variables) what Dynamo does doesnt fit that criteria either, unless the Preview is on and the particular script/graph is performing some task that displays results based on inputs. In that sense, all of the scripts/graphs that i make for data manipulation (which have no preview) technically arent “Graphs” either. I think im going to call them “thingies.”
Im proud to call them “thingies.”
All that to say, it doesnt matter. And whats interesting (just my point of view) is there are multiple threads where youve had that exact conversation with other members, and they have all responded “By script i meant the graph/dyn/whatever.” Sometimes popular opinion does form the perceived truth.
I was never a Britney Spears fan. But that doesnt mean she didnt make millions and top the charts. In a debate about “was she good,” there are a lot of ways i can lose that argument, based on public opinion.
