Make packs like Opencv optional

Hey @group I guess. Have you considererd not shipping OpenCv with the initial install and make it an additional download? It’s nearly 150 MB on disk and I suppose not every project needs it.
Same goes for some other packs like Devices.Enttec/Leap/Spacemouse/ yadda yadda.
Just have some checkboxes in the installer, like the one for the addonpack in beta.


hey bjoern, absolutely! we added VL.OpenCV with the download for now because for starters we wanted to have something in the download to play with. longterm and with proper package managing the main download can be reduced more and more and just a few clicks will install the packs you need.

this is now the case starting from 2020.2.0

hi! just installed VL.OpenCV in latest gamma, and it does not shop up as a VL nuget, maybe i’m missing some installation steps?

Just checked with 2020.2.0 and it worked for me. Here is a screenshot of my packages folder:
