I have implemented it as described:
I download Vanilla at GitHub. I open Glyphs > Skript > Skript Ordner öffnen
I copy the vanilla folder from the ZIP to …/Library/Application Support/Glyphs/Scripts/vanilla
I restart Glyphs and open > Fenster > Makro-Fenster:
FYI, an alias of the Lib folder in the Scripts folder works just as well (so that way you can git clone vanilla into a folder and then just pull updates as necessary without another step to copy the Lib folder into Glyphs).
I have a new Mac, so I installed Glyphs once again. Unfortunately, I have exactly the same problems as on the previous Mac, with the little difference that has been on the old El Capitan, on the new High Sierra.
I installed > Preferences > Install Modules (I find it a pity that there is no info message what’s happening)
I have these folders:
I open the Macro Panel:
and get these message:
_Traceback (most recent call last):_
_ File "<string>", line 1, in <module>_
_NameError: name 'vanilla' is not defined_
Because there’ s no message at all, I don’t know what happened. Is Vanilla installed or not? The folder is at the right place. I restart Glyphs after each step, so also now. So I try to install plugins. That doesn’t work either, no plugin, no nothing …
Should this work with Glyphs3 too? I copied the contents of the Lib folder into the Scripts folder but still get the error ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'vanilla'
Maybe it’s the Lib folder, rather than its contents, that need to be in Scripts? Also when clicking ‘Open Scripts Folder’ it opens the Glyphs folder which contains Scripts, Plugins, Repositories and Temp. This just makes it ambiguous, where is this stuff meant to go?
EDIT: couldn’t find Vanilla in the Preferences > Addons manager in G3 like it has in G2
I tried to update the Addons modules on Glyphs 2 from the preferences but after restarting the app (to validate them) Glyphs is crashing always and opens a traceback message that I’m attaching here as PDF:
