Join Danil Nagy for an in-depth discussion in this video Tools for scripting, part of Generative Design Foundations.
- Visual programming languages … are much more intuitive and easy to learn … for designers than traditional … text based programming languages … but they also come with some limitations. … Models created in Grasshopper and Dynamo … rely on a set of components … that are evaluated one after another … based on receiving data from an info parameter … or from another component. … This linear model makes it difficult … to implement more complex operations … such as conditionals, loops, and recursion, … which may be necessary for creating … more advanced generative models. … To overcome these limitations … we can augment the functionality … of visual programming languages … through text based computer code. … A section of computer code is often called a script … and in the computational design industry … writing computer scripts to automate … specific tasks is called scripting. … Before visual programming languages … like Grasshopper and Dynamo existed … scripting was the main way for designers …
