Pyblish by Example

Welcome to the Pyblish by Example tutorial.




You will learn

  • The basics of publishing in the production of film and games
  • The fundamentals of Pyblish and it's API
  • How to validate content
  • How to guarantee valid content on export

  • How to visualise the results of one or more publishes
  • Developer and Artist communication through the UI




Introduction

Pyblish is an open source, cross-platform framework for test-driven content creation.

Pyblish by Example is a hands-on introduction to Pyblish using short example programs written like a book - to be read from top to bottom.




Installation

If you haven't already, go ahead and install Pyblish.

$ pip install pyblish-base

Any problems, have a look at the extended installation guide.




How to use this guide

Start by confirming to yourself that you are indeed using version 1.4+ of Pyblish.

>>> import pyblish
>>> pyblish.__version__
'1.4.3'

If not, see the top-left corner of this page for a dropdown of your version.

As you read through this guide it is recommended that you use the scripting API, accessible via pyblish.util.

from pyblish import util
util.publish()

Content

Have a look to the left for a table of contents, and below for related topics in the forums.

Note: The below content was written at various versions of Pyblish and may not include current best practices, but all remain forwards compatible with version 1.4. For example, .set_data("key", "value") has been superseded by .data["key"] = "value" but will still work with newer plug-ins.
