Changing Class with SVO without having to restart Mudlet?

DochithaDochitha Posts: 1,069Member ✭✭✭✭✭ - Grand Achaean
Every time I change class, I will go to Package Manager, uninstall current class, install the class I want to switch to, then restart mudlet.

Is there a way to not have to restart mudlet but still able to change SVOF to another class?

    Create different profiles, each with a different Svof class version installed and all your other scripts the same. Then you just have to switch profile (which doesn't require a restart of Mudlet) rather than constantly uninstalling and re-installing Svof on the same profile.

    That's where using Module Manager instead of Package manager comes in handy too, you don't have to keep updating the same packages on each profile. If you have your own custom stuff, you can set that as a module which syncs, then your changes carry over from profile to profile.

    @Klendathu Is Module Manager in Mudlet 3? I don't remember ever seeing any references to it in 2.1.

    Pretty sure it was part of Mudlet 2.1 but it was in the dropdown menu and didn't have a button on the gui and if I remember correctly the top toolbar was hidden by default. Have to turn it on in the settings.

    @Antonius I've been using 3.0 delta for as long as I can remember, couldn't tell you if it's in 2.1

    Just checked the changelogs, Modules were added in at 2.0 and a gui button for the manager at 3.0 alpha.

    You guys are brilliant! It works great for me! Should have asked much ealier! QOL so good now!

    What I did, for other's benefit:
    1. Put all my stuffs into a group (alias, triggers, scripts etc) and exported them as .xml
    2. Import them again via Tools > Module Manager
    3. Delete the existing one.
    4. Delete SVOF from package manager. 
    5. Now this profile becomes an empty template that has my stuffs and nothing else.
    6. Next, copy new profiles from this template, and install respective SVOF packages for each class.
    7. Done.
    The result:
    Multiple mudlet profiles, each for a class and their respective SVOF packages, while my triggers / scripts / aliases etc are modules, syncing over all profiles. Perfect.

    Thank you very much!

    But now I have another question, I added an Alias into the module group, but didn't see the alias get updated across the profiles... How do we sync it over? I have the save & sync option checked.

    EDIT: I got it now, it's syncing over with "Save Profile" operation.

    Would be nice not have to restart. Seems like some of the code already exists what with changing into dragon and all. Ah well maybe some day  <3

    @Dochitha when I get the chance I will show you what I did which let's me swap classes without loading a new profile or anything. It can be time consuming at first but I find it worth it when I can just swap class and instantly be in the appropriate setup.

    I'd very much like some help with this too, if you've got the time!

    If you shared the knowledge with the Svof developers, they may be able to build it in as standard...

    Let me clean up/stream the code a bit when I get off work and I'll figure out who to send it to. I guess I thought this was already in the works? Anyways good idea/point.

    This is qhat I wrote in the svof thread about this topic:
    the roadblocks I hit are a bit more than I can tackle right now with a full-time job and family... I'm sorry to keep people waiting. If someone wants to have a look at it, they are more than welcome as well!

    So, yes, people are welcome to show me their way to implement it. I can't promise that this is the way that will land in svof as well because I have to consider maintenance and other things as well.
