I'm hopeful to create a custom blender bl_space_type say CUSTOMVIEW but I get this error.
bpy.utils.register_class(cls) TypeError: validating class: enum "CUSTOMVIEW" not found in ('EMPTY', 'VIEW_3D', 'TIMELINE', 'GRAPH_EDITOR', 'DOPESHEET_EDITOR', 'NLA_EDITOR', 'IMAGE_EDITOR', 'CLIP_EDITOR', 'SEQUENCE_EDITOR', 'NODE_EDITOR', 'TEXT_EDITOR', 'LOGIC_EDITOR', 'PROPERTIES', 'OUTLINE)
I noticed the EMPTY type and thought well that must be there to create a custom view somehow? Are there any blender bl_space_type empty examples? or examples of creating an addon that creates a new main area type?
Can someone confirm this is another thing that is not possible in Blender... yet? Is it in 2.8? planned?
Currently this is not possible and also no plans are yet revealed by any developer to make this possible from the python API only.
Making this part fully in python and supported by the community will not be an easy task. Are you up for it?
