Installer for local network!

Postby Kukurykus » Sat Jan 07, 2017 3:37 am

How to use this script:

You are in local network with server you keep your scripts on and there are also many other computers. You want to help users of your network they work with more efficiency. You write scripts and give out each to them. You still write new and new scripts and this is so boring you each time have to individually give them to each of your users, and additionally personally dig to some Photoshop folders and copy into new content.

This script has to let automate this all. There are few conditions:

- presets folder (you find it in Photoshop folder), and all Starup Scripts folders (you find in Common Files / Adobe folder) must be seen and available fully in your local network, otherwise this script can't copy to them its content.
- all computers in your network should have similar names, so if there are for example Kukurykus-1, Kukurykus-2, Kukurykus-3, Kukurykus-4, Kukurykus-5 and so forth it's okey. The most important is that first main word was common for all of them, and next part so -(number) was different. Other example to make it clear: MAWI-1, MAWI-2, MAWI-3, MAWI-4, MAWI-5, MAWI-6, MAWI-7 and again, so on.

If there are many versions of Photoshop it's no matter. There may be even many Photoshop versions on one computer. If so, the this script makes new Folder "Repository" in each of 'Presets' Folder and then create an alias to scripts on your server. Additionally if there is startup.jsx on your server, only this file will be sent to each version of Photoshop appriopate folder generally existing as "Startup Scripts (number)" in "Common Files / Adobe" Folder.

The only thing you have to do is to specify in initial script form how many computers there are in the local network, what is the common name of each of them, and the path to scripts folder on the server.

Basicly you have to create on some computer / server folder which path should be a little like this: //someServer/c/someFolder/(...)/Scripts where after someFolder there may be other deeper one(s) or the next one will be Scripts (or any other if you don't want this name). The same is with the name of disk and server. They don't have to be c and someServer like in this example. When you have it done put there some scripts, even other stuff like all other kind of files. If you want your user used startup.jsx script, create some and put to that server folder too. It will be sent in proper place after you launch the script. At the end Scripts from server will be available in Photoshop 'File' / ' Scripts' (PS must be restarted!)

If you can't tackle with running this script and have some questions I'm here to help :D

Code: Select all

try {
#target photoshop

It took a while before I realized that web = network :-)
If you will use web instead network it can be a bit confusing I guess.

I chagned all 'web' words to 'newtwork' in original post. A script I left untouched. Anyway why there is then common word 'website', not 'newtworksite'? :D

Btw is this script working for you if you had chance to check it? Are you Win or Mac user? If mac could you or someone tell me how this path should look like they were correct and working: //someServer/c/someFolder/(...)/Scripts

Are there in Macintosh the same paths like on Windows to these folders:

/c/Common Files/Adobe/Startup Scripts/
/c/Program Files (x86)/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop/
/c/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop/

I don't have another computers in local network which needs Photoshop. And at work we have Remote Desktop(RDP) with installed Photoshop so if somebody need Photoshop he can connect virtually. So you have installed Photohsop only in one PC and anyone can access to PS from their PCs so need copy scripts only once. Anyway they use PS only few times in week for small tasks.
