The Big Picture
While I've seen many questions about Python and Blender together posted here, most of them have strictly to do with the Blender Python Library. My question is, do question that discuss programs that use the Blender Python Library but aren't specifically about the Blender Python Library belong here?
Similarly, are "help me with my code" questions, such as many of those on StackOverflow too specific for this Exchange?
Me, myself, and I
Since the above is a little vague, I'd like to provide an example using a question I have:
I'm working with a script for Blender. There is a portion of my code where I scan through a list searching for a certain matching set of data. However, it returns an error that I want it to simply ignore and continue on doing; however, because of the structure I have set up, I can't seem to use the standard try/except, as that stop executing the command I want it to execute. My question would revolve around trying to solve this: should I use loops, reformat my try/excepts, what should I do?
As you can see, this question could be about something not involving Blender equally easily and still be a valid question. However, simultaneously, there could be a solution specific to Blender much cleaner then a general purpose solution. It also focuses on an area that makes it difficult to be directly applicable to another topic–it could, however, depending on the solution. So, does it belong or not?
In essence, there are two questions that need to be answered here:
- Is the nature of such discussions on topic and in agreement with the direction of this StackExchange?
- Are questions that center more around "help me with my code" too specific for this StackExchange?
