For troubleshooting purposes, I want to temporarily disable all addons, and then re-enable them after running some tests. Any easy way to do this other than manually?



Blender has a module it uses for addon management called addon_utils, this isn't in the API docs and is only for internal usage. But its a fairly straightforward module.

Disable all addons

Will call unregister on all registered addons.

from addon_utils import disable_all

Reset all addons

from addon_utils import reset_all

both two liners can be run from text editor, or python console.
