    Bulk Upgrade Families

    Hi fellow Reviteers:
    I've created a simple dynamo script for batch upgrading your families.....
    you will need the Rythym and clockwork packages.

    Note that this DOES NOT create a copy of your files, so you should have them copied into a new aptly named directory
    Be very careful and use at own risk.
    Comments welcome

    Nice job man! The only feedback I have is, in newer versions of Rhythm the open nodes have changed, so they will need replaced, unfortunately.

    Here are the replacement nodes names/locations.

    Yeah, both have stayed present for a bit. I am retiring the python versions on next release.

    Ok - updated version attached: Changes as follows:
    1. Newer Rhythm nodes used as suggested by John
    2. Ive added count nodes at the end, so you know how many families have been processed

    The rhythm package now has a node specifically for this.
