A small exe file to autostruct your craft. No need to click every single part again!

please put this in your saves file: KSP\saves\your file\Ships\SPH or VAB, then run the exe file.

@buguniao Thank you for your work!

Correct me if i'm wrong here, but do i have to quit KSP to run the .exe file in both SPH and VAB folders in order to "auto"-strut a craft just built? This surely can be done with a .cfg file? Not to mention me not liking executable files from "random" places.

Also a small other thing, you have misspelled the headline "One Key Autostruct"

It is also possible with Editor Extensions Redux

Anyway, it's always nice to see different approaches (and different programm languages^^) :) 

@buguniao Proably my python skills are too basic to understand your code completely but do you respect parts which doesn't allow autostruts? There are quiet a few (some solar panels for example) which will cause a NRE if you apply autostruts to them anyway.

well, I've never met those situations before. The python program just replaces the default one and convert it to strut to root or something. it's just a simple trick:P so I don't think it's hard to understand

Sure, this applies to many other things as well if you are the one who learned it ;)
But if you just scratched the surface of python several years ago, you will probably stumple upon some parameters or other stuff like the 'cid' integer, which is used twice in the code: when it is set to 0, and when it is incremented by 1. So, is it just something you have used to debug the script or is there something going on in the background?

Anyway:

Build a vessel which got some OX-STAT Photovoltaic Panels and/or a FL-A5 Adapter, run your script on it, spawn the vessel in the game and you will probably come across this NRE (happens everytime after decoupling these parts from the vessel but sometimes also already on the launchpad):

A joint can't connect the body to itself.
 
(Filename:  Line: 362)

NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

These parts don't allow autostruts on them...there are probably more but these are the two I'm aware of.
Since the boolean for 'AllowAutoStruts' is not set in a part config or the craft file, I'm not quiet sure if there is actually a way to access the value without having access to the instance of the object.
