net.loadbang.shado Build Status Dependency Status

shado is a compositing and sprite library for the monome. It is written in Java, but designed to be dynamically scripted in a language like Python and hosted in MaxMSP (or Max for Live). The common usage scenario is to install shado alongside our Java Python interpreter in a MaxMSP system, and drive it via Python scripts triggered and controlled by MaxMSP messages.

To get a sense for what's achievable in shado, take a look at this video.

The file README.MANUAL will eventually be the manual for shado; for now, it contains an explanation of the shado architecture - quite possibly, along with the examples, just about enough to start writing shado "programs".
