How to:
Install
If you are starting up the script for the first time execute this python code:
import assetManager as am
am.install()

The script will then ask you to choose the main folder for your asset library, and then you can choose if you want to create a shelf icon. You can repeat this process as many times as you like to create different libraries.

Start

To start the Asset Manager you can either use the shelf button just created or execute this python code:

Before starting remember to put the path you want between the double quotes (")

import assetManager as am
am.start("YOUR _PATH_HERE")

 for example:

import assetManager as am
am.start("C:\Users\Peppe\Desktop\Assets")

 if you leave it blank the script will start in your default maya directory (usually documents/maya)

Use

You can create new assets using the floppy disk icon on the top right, or right clicking and selecting "New Asset". If you have nothing selected the script will save the whole scene, otherwise it will only save the selected objects.

To create a new folder you can use the folder icon on the top right or right click-> "New Folder.

The icon on the top left is used to go up one folder.
