You can emit and catch your own signals.
import pyblish.apiclass MyCollector(pyblish.api.ContextPlugin):order = pyblish.api.CollectorOrderdef process(self, context):pyblish.api.emit("myEvent", data="myData")
You can then catch this signal anywhere in your program.
import pyblish.apidef on_my_event(data):print(data)pyblish.api.register_callback("myEvent", on_my_event)
Callbacks can be useful for, amongst other things:
On a technical note, callbacks are run on the main thread and block until finished. This means that if for example one of your callbacks would take 10 seconds to finish, publishing overall will take 10 seconds longer. On the upside, it also means that the Context will accurately reflect the current state at the time of a signal emitting.
