vipe

The very venomous visual programming environment.

The vipe ecosystem consists of a standard for defining visual programs (see example.xml), an interpreter that executes programs written in the standard, and (coming soon) a web-based editor for creating programs.

Requirements

  • node.js
  • npm
  • xml2js
  • Some patience

Install & Usage

npm install vipe

vipe program.xml

Please note, if you're going to be hacking from source, remember to call jake build after downloading the source and after modifying any of the libraries, then call npm link! If you add a library that's written in CoffeeScript, add it to the libs array in the Jakefile so that it will be converted to JavaScript.

Contributing

Fork and pull, baby! Current big-ticket items are documentation (and comments), building an easily extensible library system so that anyone can write nodes to use in their programs, and putting together the web editor. Feel free to post issues or send me a tweet @esherido (I gladly accept any non-sketchy/spammy/botty follow requests).
