Ruby Console noise

Developing my own extension while I have Skatter installed gets noisy with it’s messages outputted to the console:

---- Skatter 1.4.6---- 
Regenerate render instances from attributes : 0.0 s
---- End ----

Could this instead be muted in release builds please? Could be wrapped around a debug setting if it’s useful to collect info from users.

This appears because you have an active Skatter setup in your file. Go to Skatter’s Render List and delete everything.
If there is nothing, Skatter will stay silent.

I see this every time I open a file or do a file new.

In either case I’d prefer if I could silence this.

I’ll add it to my todo list.

In the meantime, do you have a custom template?

Yea, an old UV-cube I’ve been using for years:

UV Cube.skp (24.5 KB)

That’s weird, I don’t have anything in the console when opening your file. There are no attributes that should trigger Skatter.
Are you starting Skatter manually?

To silence Skatter, edit C:\ProgramData\SketchUp\SketchUp 2018\SketchUp\Plugins\jbb_skatter\rb\methods.rb and set @debug = false on line 6

(Please don’t look at the code, it’s embarrassing :stuck_out_tongue: )

Nope - I see it when I’m not using Skatter on models I’ve never used Skatter on.


Can you try with the default templates?

Tried with the Architecture Millimetre template, same thing.
