Using external packages

Recommended Posts

I have developed plugins with Vectorscript and have created a few small python scripts.  I'm looking at going a little deeper and running into roadblocks.


1. I want to use an python external package called pandas which makes joining and merging data sets and python objects easier.  I am struggling on figuring out the process of adding external packages specifically with vectorworks.  (There are a few threads that mention external packages but I cant follow their initial setup.)   They also mention an "external packages" folder in the users folder.  I don't see that folder so is it just a folder in my vw users folder. Did they manually create this folder?


2. If this package in included in a deployment of a Vectorworks plugin, how does the implementation of the external package reach the end user?   Does the package have to be installed on each users machine?


Thanks for any info!
