Sharing

Publishing is about sharing, so let's have a look at how to publish something other than by printing.

import os
import datetime
import pyblish.api
class CollectUserDir(pyblish.api.ContextPlugin):
order = 0
def process(self, context):
context.data["userDir"] = os.path.expanduser("~")
class WriteTime(pyblish.api.ContextPlugin):
order = 1
def process(self, context):
user_dir = context.data["userDir"]
destination_path = os.path.join(user_dir, "time.txt")
print("Writing time to %s" % destination_path)
with open(destination_path, "w") as f:
f.write("The time is %s" % datetime.datetime.today().ctime())
pyblish.api.register_plugin(CollectUserDir)
pyblish.api.register_plugin(WriteTime)
import pyblish.util
pyblish.util.publish()
# Writing time to C:\Users\marcus\Documents\time.txt

And here's what time.txt looks like.

The time is Thu Jan 21 16:34:58 2016
