Looking to get more productive i started using some more special InkScape extensions. I love InkScape. And i love things like 3d printing, laser cutting, vinyl cutting, pen plotting, maths, physics, geometry, patterns, 2D drawings, 3D CAD and so on. I am also interested to learn embroidery and more stuff. All this you can do with InkScape! After years i recognized that there is no good source to pull extensions in a quick and clean way. Each developer puts his own code on his hidden/unknown repository and often without enough documentation or visible results for understanding. Many plugins are completely unknown and a lot of extensions are forked x times or are unmaintained. So many of them do not work with recent InkScape or were never tested with newer versions so far.
This is a one-to-bundle-them-all collection of hundreds of additional functions to InkScape (extensions) for the new Python 3 based version 1.X including documentation. All plugins where sorted into custom categories (to avoid overloading the standard extension menu of InkScape). You can find most of them in sub menu “FabLab Chemnitz”. I renamed and cleaned a lot of *.inx files and *.py files. I applied some function renamings, id changes (for preferences.xml clean-keeping), spelling fixes, formattings and parameter corrections.
I stopped counting the extensions. It took many weeks to search and find all them on the web (so much different possible sources where to find!), to read, to comment (report issues), to fix problems, to test, to document and to provide them online. Many extensions were lost in translation / really really hidden.
At least this repo will help to bring alife some good things from the past and will show hidden gold. It meshes things together in a fresh and bundled way - with ease of use and minimum installation stress. A lot of code is not at the optimum. A mass of bugs has to be fixed and different tools should be improved in usage generally. This package will show errors more quickly. So hopefully a lot of new code fixes is result from this package. Maybe some people help to make all the stuff compatible with InkScape 1.0 and newer.
I think this package is ideal for makers who are travelling around and/or using a lot of different machines at different locations.
