yeah, I learned that I need to know the API of SketchUp (SU) but I also need to know the basic of RUBY language. Well, what I meant is that once I learned something regarding the SU API, I will use it as a reference and look at the RUBY language to understand how it works.
Yes, I know about the ruby console which is very useful. That’s why I used a command line in the plugin so I can find out any mistakes I made:
Of course, It will take me through many trials and errors to get the functions I wanted to be working. That’s a way to learn from your mistakes. That’s why I mentioned I am a beginner.
I know the feel of when you got something working and you jumped around the room and singing “Yahoooooo” or something else. I have felt that many time with modeling in SU when I got the shape correct as I wanted it to look like. I am sure you already know that nobody would become an expert in programming without going through trials and errors. The trials and errors would mean where you would have made a ton of mistakes, being frustrated, angry and yelling “why-why!”, and having a nightmare, going through the books and other research to find out why you are getting it right.
It happened to me and everybody. I had the experiences with modeling. I know I will go through that trial and errors again, but this time it’s with programming.
