Thinking of everyone across the road at this time.  It's not nice.  Been there and done it many times.  These things have a tendency to work out for the best in my experience.

At least he has a sense of humour.

I register all my menu's and commands with xml.  Looks like a version of this could be used in Maya with a little re factoring.  Tonight's research me thinks! +Cesar Saez

Nice one David!

It sounds like a great way to get Maya commands using 'pymel.core.runtime' and then having separate files for custom scripts.   :-)

Using _doc_ strings for dynamic tool-tips in your UI?  I do this quite often these days.  I may write a PyQt GUI that I will populate based on model / view paradigms.  Often the data in my models are python objects such as method or class.  Sometimes I want that object to get it's tool-tip from the objects _doc_ string.  This has ugly formatting if you just leave it as is.  Enter textwrap

You can take this further by adding your own mark-up to your doc strings and filtering this out using regex.  Your model can use this in multiple ways as meta data if you don't want to use class properties for this data.

Removing Existing Indentation¶. Notice the embedded tabs and extra spaces mixed into the middle of the output. It looks pretty rough. We can do better if we start by removing any common whitespace prefix from all of the lines in the sample text. This allows us to use docstrings or embedded ...

I Knew it.  At some point Maya's Character Sets would come and bite me in the bum.   If you use them with referenced character rigs then be very careful with them.  If you re-publish your rig and have locked a previously open attribute or removed / added an attribute from the character set.  You'd better check it works in the animation files.  I have code to save out a character set, load them and merge them.  This fixed the problem.  I'll tidy up the lib and stick it on GitHub....

I really don't understand why this bug has continued along for so long. Frustrating.

Story
Introduction
For as long as I can remember I've loved Art. I even applied to RARE as a 12 year old, certain that I’d come up with a brilliant game design. 21 years on I’m actually doing what I love, which all boils down to 1 thing. I love the process of making games and digital art. Often the process of getting from A to B is more important than the result. With games this is especially true. It’s a technology driven business and artists have to stay up to date with the latest practices and software to be relevant. Processes must change with new technology and evolve to be more streamlined and effective. All this while maintaining high artistic results delivered on time and on budget. With 10 years experience in the games industry I've realized that there is Art in this process, and technical art is an vibrant ever changing landscape, offering and demanding new challenges on a daily basis.
