# Revision history [back]

Currently, OpenStudio can report the model version, but there is not a definitive method or test for which version of the OpenStudio _codebase_ (1.x or 2.x) a measure is currently running within. The following crude method was added to the Radiance measure to provide a more definitive OS-version test. While both OS versions are extant, you may want to implement something like to maintain backward compatibility this in your own measures:

def got_2x
v2 = true
begin
got_workflow = OpenStudio::WorkflowJSON # i can haz wofkflow gem?
rescue NameError
v2 = false
return v2
end
return v2
end


e.g.

if !got_2x
# find EnergyPlus with 1.x Runmanager
co = OpenStudio::Runmanager::ConfigOptions.new
co.fastFindEnergyPlus
else
require 'openstudio-workflow' #OS2.x only
epp = OpenStudio::getEnergyPlusExecutable() # yeah, you know me


You get the idea.
