lpm

Live package manager.. cof.. cof...

Actually just a simple command line tool to install max4live devices out of zip files.

Docs

Have fun. :)

Installing

First you need Node.js then:

npm install -g lpm

Usage

lpm midi       [/path/to/a/zip/file]
# download and unzip the file into your Max for live midi folder
lpm instrument [/path/to/a/zip/file]
# download and unzip the file into your Max for live instrument folder
lpm effect     [/path/to/a/zip/file]
# download and unzip the file into your Max for live audio effects folder

TODO

  • Add commands to install AU and VSTs

  • Find out a better way to download zip files from web: at the moment when downloading a zip from github it will fail due to the 302 message error.

  • Add a simple database to store data, so the user would able to install / uninstall / disable installed plugins

  • Fix windows version

    • perhaps just adjust some paths on install.coffee will do the job

Should be simple and would be great if someone could contribute with that.

Next Steps

Having a centralized repository, or list of packages.

Agree on some configuration file, i.e. yaml or json file to specify package version, author among other basic information
