Melt

A polargraph controller

Melt is my response to the awesome and complete Polargraph Controller made by Sandy Noble. It's a way to interact with the Polargraph Server in a more modern and flexible way.

About

My main goal when making Melt was to create a way to write creative code as if it were p5.js or Processing, being able to import a sketch and make minimum changes for the plotter to make the drawing. It might also be the best way for a slow, relaxed debugging.

Download

Head to the releases page and select your Mac or Windows flavor. (Linux on the way)

Build

Prerequisites: Node, npm, yarn (if you want to build)

  1. Clone / Download This Repository

  3. Download dependencies with npm install
  4. To run the app npm start
  5. To build the app npm run build (will trigger yarn dist)

Awesome Libraries used in this project

Hack

The app structure is very basic. It´s a website wrapped by Electron. main.js starts the process, it´s mostly electron stuff. client/index.html holds the DOM elements. client/melt.js is where everything happens. The code is pretty straight forward, go ahead and have a happy hacking

Use

This software is not even Alpha. There's no warranty, but also it's harmless. Feel free to suggest improvements, submit issues or pull request new features/fixes

You are most invited to open the developer console, poke around, break things and hack your way.
