Hi everyone! Questions from a probably-be openrndr user, hope someone might point me towards docs, info, exchanges etc.
I’m involved with keeping a repertory of old pieces for live-electronics audio+video alive. Typically they’re laid out in software like SuperCollider, Max/MSP, Tom Demeyers Image/ine and Gem software for live-el video.
An important aim is to get rid of as much as possible of hard/software dependencies, esp. proprietary stuff. Hopefully this will be an once-and-for-all job, where a chosen solution will last for a long time.
In the audio world, Pure-data vanilla, together with Miller Puckette and others 'pdrp-project: pdrp project addresses these issues explicitly, and already gets a long way towards minimizing such problems. Some aims: minimizing difficult-to-maintain deps. (maintainance-stop of 3rd-pary libs, core developers changing job…), setting up a comprehensive test-suite to check new builds, and others.
Are similar considerations are part of the openrndr development, if there are development branches focusing specially on such issues etc. Any pointers to discussions etc., or perhaps other forums where such issues may be more relevant, are much welcomed.
