Ankit Meel (ankitm) added a comment to D14941: Native STL Importer.

From a brief read

  • importer_main is doing too much: opening the file, applying transformation, making objects active, tagging data for updates. Can be broken down into simpler functions IMO.
  • Avoid bare delete, MemFreeN, fclose etc at the end of functions.. Make wrapper classes that'll free the resource in the destructor or use unique_ptr. https://isocpp.github.io/CppCoreGuidelines/CppCoreGuidelines#Rh-smart

@Aras Pranckevicius (aras_p) Since your update after the initial commit added DEG_id_tag_update calls etc, please see if removing the above line causes any problem. I had written it to force a viewport refresh. I have been told that it's not the right way.

@Iyad Ahmed (iyadahmed2001) Creating and uploading diffs seems cumbersome.

Ankit Meel (ankitm) added a comment to D14883: Fix std::optional value() build error on older macOS SDK.

Just FYI
https://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/utility/optional/operator*

This operator does not check whether the optional contains a value! You can do so manually by using has_value() or simply operator bool(). Alternatively, if checked access is needed, value() or value_or() may be used.

Ankit Meel (ankitm) added a comment to D14686: pyproject: add configuration for autopep8.

If this is auto detected by editors, I guess this needs to go along with reformatting all the code in blender and add-ons repositories? Otherwise editing files without accidentally reformatting will be difficult.

Was partially done in
rB3035235defe0: Cleanup: run autopep8 on tests/
rB58d86527ae28: Cleanup: run autopep8 on release/scripts/startup/

And then if we enforce this, it should run as part of make format.

Think it's better if get_blender_version accepted an optional argument for the header path so that the caller is responsible for setting the same relative to itself, instead of the function guessing who's calling it and from where.
