Suggestion - DYN file Should Embed Packages

We must have custom packages installed for a DYN file to function. There’s two ways to solve this:

  1. On first run, Dynamo can install needed packages automatically.
    or
  2. Simply embed the custom package.

Manually managing package installations on multiple computers is a problem.

What do you guys think?

Hi,
My two cents…
Use a central location for the packages.
And use Manage Node and Package paths in the settings menu

This has come up a few times and it is some that the Dynamo team even discussed a bit here,


However, I do think it is still a LONG time before they really look at implementing something OOTB.

There are quite a few other ways of handling this yourself though. (Here is a non-exhaustive list)


If there are others I have missed, feel free to add.
