How to install

For the makehuman plugins:

  • Download the entire repository as a zip file (you should see a green button "clone or download" on github)
  • Figure out where your makehuman plugins directory is. On windows, it's usually a dir called "plugins" where you unzipped MH. On linux it is in /usr/share/makehuman/plugins if you installed from PPA
  • Copy everything from the makehuman directory in the zip you downloaded to the plugins directory
  • All plugins should autoenable the next time you start MH

For the blender plugin(s) :

  • Download the file blender_distribution/ (or find it locally if you downloaded the zip above)
  • In blender go to file -> user preferences -> addons
  • Click "install from file"
  • Navigate to the file

Existing plugins

So far this repo contains the following plugins:


MakeHuman plugin. This doesn't do anything in itself, it just provides convenience methods for getting info about stuff in makehuman or controlling stuff in makehuman. See the README in the directory.


MakeHuman plugin for downloading assets from the community repos. This depends on 1_mhapi


MakeHuman plugin, opens a socket server inside MH and accepts some basic commands. This depends on 1_mhapi


Blender plugin. Requires MH to have 8_server_socket. Synchronizes various aspects of the human versus a running instance of MH. Currently supports

Command line scripts

In the "cli" directory there are scripts which are intended to run from command line, and which either interact with the plugins or are used for the management of them
