Here is tool I created for myself a while back when I am rigging in Maya. Basically I turned my shelf into a quick and simple tool, and used it every time I rigged something. This tools has all the shortcuts that are most used by riggers. Feel free to grab it as its FREE, read the "Read Me" file to installation help. Enjoy :)
Requirements: PyQt4 and PySide installed inside your preferred version of Maya’s Python Site Packages. For example (C:\Program Files\Autodesk\”Your Maya Version”\Python\Lib\site-packages\) PyQt4 download link: https://www.riverbankcomputing.com/software/pyqt/download PySide download link: https://wiki.qt.io/Category:LanguageBindings::PySide::Downloads Make sure the PyQt4 version matches your Maya’s bit operation. If your Maya is 32-Bit then download x32 version of PyQt4 and vice versa.
OPTION 1 1- Copy the python code to your Maya Scripts Directory (C:\user\”USER”\Documents\Maya\”Version of maya you use\Scripts”) 2- Open Maya and go to script tab below on the left corner and change it to Python if you currently have MEL (Click on MEL to change it to Python) 3- Run this code (import DD’s_Rigging_Shortcuts_v01 run() )
OPTION 2 1- Open the .py file throug notepad (I prefer Notepad++ or Sublime Text) and simple copy paste the code to Maya’s Python script tab in Script Editor (Window>General Editors>Script Editor).
