Default ReaPack: Package manager for REAPER

ReaPack: Package manager for REAPER

ReaPack is an extension for easily downloading and updating REAPER resources (currently: ReaScripts, JS effects, themes, native extensions, language packs, web browser interfaces, automation items, project templates, track templates and MIDI note names).

Out of the box it gives easy access to more than 900 resources of all sorts from the ReaTeam repositories (uploaded by the community), mpl's and X-Raym's collections.
More repositories can be imported into the extension to get access to even more resources. Developers can submit content to the ReaTeam repositories or alternatively host their own.

ReaPack let you install only what you want (Browse packages) or everything in bulk (Options > Install new packages when synchronizing):



Latest stable release: v1.2.1 (2017-12-14) https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?p=1925717

Love it! Essential add-on for REAPER. Next best thing to having all this stuff native in a DAW. But that ship has sailed

This is a true masterpiece :P

Scripting used to be a secret thing on ReaScript/JSFX forum, which has a lots of lost treasure known only by the veterans, but with ReaPack, we aim to make script/effects/resources sharing easier than ever, so that any one can enjoy them freely !

If you want to Understand a bit more the idea behind ReaPack, take a look at this article :
ReaPack: Download, Manage and Update ReaScripts/JSFX Easily with this new REAPER Extension / ExtremRaym

Cheers, and thanks to everyone that will support our free community work on these projects (ReaPack, and the resources creation associated to it) !

OMG! thanks a bazillion times for this little gem!

For a dumb musician like me who has no idea how to even implement a reascript into reaper, this is like a light from the heavens!

That's the beauty of it! it's a wrapper for us non programmers, so we can use all the amazing tools the coders did through the years.. like audio quantizing, fancy splitting schemes... amazing templates.. cool JS effects.. all there at your fingertips!

all that power in a simple, click-able box that auto updates...

OMG is this ever cool!

Thanks to cfillion for creating this beatiful extension from many russian users! This openes scripting world for regular users and, as X-Raym said, bring REAPER evolution to another level.

Glad we finally did it!

In the OP there's a link to the manual.

I'd truly appreciate everyone to show a bit of respect for what's been done here by these kind gentlemen. Ask nicely, otherwise figure out things for yourself. Make a good use of the words "please" and "thanks".

Thank you

Default filtering

Now that it is installed. I open actions how do you filter reappack item from the other items in actions, I saw no mention of this in the app notes. The purpose is so that the beta item from reappack don't end up in the current project till reappack is proven to be safe to use.

Can we download and update Eugens scripts yet ?

I heard a rumor that's already possible. Maybe I missed that. I tried giving the extension the URL of the index file in his repository and it didn't work yet.

There are some pretty good scripts in that repository, including a sample editor.

You need the RAW link, otherwise you're linking to Github's page for the file

I was thinking, maybe the thread name could be more descriptive to help raise awareness of this awesome tool. Something like "ReaPack: User script database download manager" or something in that vein. Of course, it also deals with JSFX, so "script database" might not be entirely accurate, but the term "package" is a bit ambiguous IMHO.

Is there any description of what the scripts do?
The package name might as well be written in secret code.

There is often some documentation at the top of the code and there's always the forum threads. I'm working on per-package documentation capability in ReaPack for v1.1.

Ah, this seems happens when the MIDI editor is not open. Good catch. I'll fix it.

Edit: Fixed, and created pull-request.

Thanks for reporting! It's a known issue of ReaPack v1.0. The fix will be included in v1.1. If you'd like to try it out early, you can get the latest pre-release straight from the package browser (search for ReaPack and select Versions/v1.1rc5).

I always end up with 9 errors after I synchronize packages and all 9 say the same thing:

ReaTeam JSFX/Synth/TimeWaster_ReaRack Modular Synth.jsfx v1.1:
Conflict: Effects\ReaTeam JSFX\Synth\ReaRack Modular Synth\TimeWaster_ReaRack Amplifier.jsfx is already owned by another package

Is this normal?

These FXs were initially distributed separately but were later bundled together as a single package. The bundle cannot be installed as long as the separate packages are still there.

To fix this simply uninstall them (they're in Package Browser > Display: Obsolete).
Or try the release candidate of ReaPack v1.1: it has a feature for dealing with obsolete packages when synchronizing and avoiding these errors.

Installing REAPER takes less than 15 seconds, so I see that as a feature (more possible use cases and way easier to make) rather than an issue.

Thank you, Sir! Found 20 obsolete. All fixed.

@cfillion: "About" popup windows seem to not remember their position. Would be nice if they did, because on a dual monitor setup here, they always appear right smack in the middle, and a good part of it is not really readable because of bezels, so I have to move them each and every time...

Same happens for download dialog and transaction report dialog. Ideally they should show in the middle of monitor #1.

Thanks!

Good idea, I'll do just that. If I understood you right, you are saying ReaPack's windows are opening right between the monitors? I can reproduce by spanning REAPER's main window over both monitors. I'll improve that as well.

Yes. REAPER calls that "portable install". See this video: http://reaper.fm/videos.php#PlsLEc5cvEM

If you previously updated ReaPack from v1.1rc2 or rc3 then it's a known bug in those two versions (a temporary file was not deleted on Windows/Wine). I fixed that back in rc4 so it shouldn't not happen anymore with future updates.
(You can confirm that by reinstalling it from the Package Browser: if it works then it's good)

Default 64 bit vs 32 bit, Win OS vs Reaper

In the install instructions you might want to consider clarifying which ReaPack should be downloaded. It says "select the one that matches the Reaper architecture" or something like that...

What I fould:
Running Reaper 32 bit - download ReaPack 32 bit
Running Reaper 64 bit - download ReaPack 64 bit

Seems obvious, right? But I run Reaper 32 bit on a 64 bit Win7 PC.
So, after loading the 64 bit Reapack, I was left scratching my head as to why it wouldn't work... I finally figured out that the ReaPack 32bit goes with Reaper 32bit.

It should give some indication that the OS wordsize is not important, what matters is the Reaper wordsize.
-----------------------

Also:
For those of you who use ReaMenu - The ReaPack Menu item shows up under Memory->Default menu: Main Extensions->ReaPack. I'll probably add a copy to the Memory menu so it will show up there too.
-----------------------

Thanks to the OP for his amazing work on this thing!!!

ReaPack always supported data files (since v0.10-beta actually).

The rename operator (>) is not needed when keeping the filename as it is on the repository.

Code:

provides: [data] midi_velocity_viewer_drums/GM Basic.txt

or, to add every txt files from the subdirectory to the package:
provides: [data] midi_velocity_viewer_drums/*.txt

After commiting the change and running `reapack-index --amend` to update the version already released in the index:
Problem solved: Now it works perfect after following your clear description.

Thank you very much for your fast help! :-)
