Installing Reactor manually
Installing Reactor using the installer script
Installing Reactor couldn't be simpler. Download the Reactor-Installer.lua script above and simply drag it from your desktop into the Fusion Console tab to run it. Alternatively, you can also copy/paste the script into the Console text entry area. An Install Reactor window will open.
Click the "Install and Relaunch" button. After a few seconds the Reactor Installer progress bar will appear and the installation will proceed.
Reactor.fufile will be downloaded from the Reactor GitLab repository and is saved to the Fusion user prefs location at
Config:/Reactor.fu. Also being written is a new
AllData:Reactor:/System/Reactor.cfgfile that is used to control what repositories are used with Reactor.
When the installer finishes, Fusion will restart automatically and the Reactor Package Manager will be displayed.
Installing Reactor ManuallyIf you are a studio system admin/pipeline TD and need more control over the Reactor install process you can manually download files from the GitLab repo and install the tool by yourself.

Uninstalling ReactorTo uninstall Reactor from your system you need to remove the downloaded Reactor "atom" content by deleting the Reactor folder that is located in your shared Fusion
You should also remove the
Reactor.fufile from your Fusion user preferences
Config:/directory. This will stop the Reactor menu item from being added to Fusion.
The next time you restart Fusion, Reactor will have been cleanly removed.
