Disable green light frame

To every light, there's an attached green frame showing the direction of the light. Is there a way to disable this frame? Preferably from within a c++ plugin or the sdf-file. Any help appreciated!

I recently stumbled across an implementation of a plugin that appears to do exactly what you were looking for, in NASA's IRG open source github. Source can be found here. Hopefully this helps people who stumble across this issue in the future.

There currently isn't a way to do this, see the open issue. It would be nice if someone made a pull request adding this feature :) At the very least, you could vote for that issue.

If you have a directional light, since its position is not important (only orientation matters), I usually place it far away from the scene, for example:

<pose>0 0 -1000 0 0 0</pose>

Ok thanks for your answer! I voted for the issue, hopefully it will be implemented soon!
