I am using blender with an addon called blensor. I have some trouble with this addon and would like to alter its code at some place to see the effect my changes made. Here is a working procedure:
- Edit the appropriate python file of the addon in a text editor and save.
- Restart blender
- Change is visible when running addon
This however is quite tidious for debugging. It would be nice to be able to reload the addon without having to restart blender. I did some research and tried to following, with no success:
- Pressing F8 within blender. Looking at the console I can see that blensor seems to be reloaded but the changes I made are not visible when running it. Maybe the output "addon_utils.disable: cycles not disabled" in the system console means something?
- Opening the python script in blender's text editor, changing and saving it and clicking Text -> Reload. Does not seem to have any effect.
Any other ways or idea what I am missing?
