comment Any plans to change GP toolbox format (.tbx file) to text-based format?
Quite literal answer; though I don't have an idea what 'a toolbox generator' could be if the format is known to esri only.

@KirkKuykendall : good idea. Maybe it may work to level 1: you can deserialize and serialize some binary crap. However I don't expect anything useful. I found .tbx is in this ancient format: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COM_Structured_Storage

comment Guidelines for organizing Python Toolboxes (.pyt) in ArcGIS
"the idea to create one PYT file with 500-1000 or more lines of code does not look good to me". U're not alone, Alex. Today I promptly stated that .pyt is an invention of sick mind. And I won't regret it.

comment Why do you use ArcGIS for Desktop?
(Marketing alert). If you're in the utility sector specifically in water and wastewater; find GEOSECMA. I'd like to hear some critics on it. (Sorry, I couldn't bash that FORTRAN style vs our Marketing dpt.)

Actually, Python toolbox is an invention of a pervert mind. .pyt file is a valid python file however no Python IDE will recognize this fact. Further that led to other perversions. Some guys made a good job adding .pyt syntax highlighting to GitHub.

comment Is it possible to add python util scripts as shared libraries to esri geoprocessing toolbox?
In fact I look at future of .tbx as something like java jar file. It's a zip file, it has a file system structure (folders and files) so any class packed into jar can access other class using same notation as in file system. If you unpack jar into some folder, it works the same. Quite elegant.

Before I can "export the py from the .tbx" I need to know how do I pack py that isn't a GP tool into tbx. With python toolbox (.pyt) some guys go further wishing to pack even library folders into them: ideas.arcgis.com/ideaView?id=087E00000004nlnIAA

@Vince I can store binaries in any VCS. But I want to find out what changes were made between version 1 and version 2.

Most of our tools are .NET (COM) based. Some used for printing are Python based. We use custom toolbox (.tbx). Here is a link that compares both types of toolboxes: resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#/…
