How to use Python scripts to implement the reconnection point function in glyphs, or can Python be used to call it?
Layer.reconnectNodesAtNode1_node2_offset_(nodesA, nodesB, distance)
nodesB should be the
LINE nodes of a path in
distance can be customized if you want more offset space after reconnection.
thisNodes = Layer.shapes Layer.reconnectNodesAtNode1_node2_offset_(thisNodes, thisNodes, 10)
Thank you, this is great！！！
But in glyphs2, an error is reported：
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 10, in
AttributeError: ‘NSKVONotifying_GSLayer’ object has no attribute ‘reconnectNodesAtNode1_node2_offset_’
There are other functions in glyphs2 that can replace reconnectNodesAtNode1_ node2_ offset_ Is it okay
Well, I have Glyphs 3 only that the API might be different from Glyphs 2.
However, you can list all properties and methods via
print( dir(Layer) ) # or print( dir(Layer.shapes) )
and try to find the related attributes by keyword such as
reconnect and so on.
How to know the meaning of parameter input for attributes
I hope that the method names should give a good idea about the parameters.
Those methods with underscores are actually objectiveC selectors that where translated to python. The one mentioned above is defined like this:
- (void)reconnectNodesAtNode1:(GSNode *)node1 node2:(GSNode *)node2 offset:(CGFloat)offset;
For some methods you can check the headers files in:
Glyphs 3.app/Contents/Frameworks/GlyphsCore.framework/Versions/A/Headers or in Glyphs Core API
Thanks very much!!！
