the software framework for the robotcowboy project
Copyright (c) Dan Wilcox 2007, 2011-2012
See https://github.com/danomatika/robotcowboy for documentation
robotcowboy is an audio/visual environment for performance. It features:
- a Pure Data audio instance
- a Lua scripting environment inspired by OpenFrameworks/Processing
- a scene system including playlists
- midi io
- inter-app OSC communication
- 2d physics using Box2d
It's directly inspired by the original RjDj app and Love2d. I decided to write my own app in order to add the features I needed for a live performance focus.
NOTE: THIS IS CURRENTLY IN ALPHA DEVELOPMENT. BETA COMING SOON.
Additionally, you will need the following add ons:
They should be installed in the
addons dir in the OpenFrameworks folder.
Running the app will currently run a playlist of test scenes.
A scene is a single program run by the environment written as a combination of Pure Data patches and Lua scripts. robotcowboy looks for _main.pd and _main.lua as their respective entry points and OSC is used to communicate between the audio and visual engines.
More detailed info to come soon.
