Lunchbox on Alias distribution of Dynamo

We recently got a question about how to install lunchbox to work with the version of Dynamo that ships with Alias.

Lunchbox installs to %appdata%\Dynamo\Dynamo Core\2.0\packages

But Alias looks in other directories.

The simplest way to get lunchbox working with the Alias distribution of Dynamo is to add the first path to the node and package paths.

You can do this from the Dynamo top menu > Settings > Manage Node and Package Paths… > and use the + to add “%appdata%\Dynamo\Dynamo Core\2.0\packages” to the list of paths.


Unfortunately when I try to install it doesn’t let me choose “dynamo” (i have the alias version) and I cannot find it into the appdata folder.
Any suggestions?

I think you’ll need to contact the author of lunchbox.

I already did that some time ago, but we couldn’t really figure out how to solve this, as even when the Alias folder structure was the same what lunchbox was expecting, it did work for Dynamo 1.3, but not for 2.x. I will have another look at this, and let you know the outcome soon.
