BY DOWNLOADING OR USING THE LX SOFTWARE OR ANY PART THEREOF, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE LX STUDIO SOFTWARE LICENSE AND DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENT.

Please note that LX is not open-source software. The license grants permission to use this software freely in non-commercial applications. Commercial use is subject to a total annual revenue limit of $25K on any and all projects associated with the software. If this licensing is obstructive to your needs or you are unclear as to whether your desired use case is compliant, contact me to discuss proprietary licensing: mark@heronarts.com


P3LX Overview

P3LX is a Processing 3 wrapper library for the LX lighting engine and the basis of the LX Studio application. It allows you to simply embed LX inside a Processing sketch with a rich UI library that makes it easy and painless to render 3D simulations alongside versatile 2D controls.

Directly working with the P3LX library is only recommended for advanced users of LX. The easiest way to start an LX project is to clone or fork the LXStudio repository and use that as the basis for your project.

Development Environment

The recommended IDE for LX is Eclipse, with simple ant tasks for command-line build. Create a folder to work in and clone both the LX and P3LX repositories side-by-side.

$ mkdir workspace
$ cd workspace
$ git clone https://github.com/heronarts/LX.git
$ git clone https://github.com/heronarts/P3LX.git

To build the project:

$ cd P3LX/build
$ ant
$ cp ../bin/P3LX.jar <wherever you need it>

To open the project in Eclipse:

File | Import...
General > Existing Projects Into Workspace
Select root directory...

Go through this process for both the LX and P3LX projects, selecting workspace/LX and workspace/P3LX as the root directories.

Alternate build process: Maven

First: Install Maven for your platform. Google is your friend.

You'll still want to check out both LX and this repo locally (as of this writing neither is published to a public Maven repo):

$ git clone https://github.com/heronarts/LX.git
$ git clone https://github.com/heronarts/P3LX.git
$ cd LX
$ mvn install
$ cd ../P3LX
$ mvn install

The above commands result in the following artifacts: in P3LX/target:

  1. fat jar with dependencies
  2. thin jar for distribution via maven repository publishing
  3. source jar for distribution via maven repository publishing
  4. javadoc jar for distribution via maven repository publishing
  5. javadoc html files for publishing to web: apidocs

The Maven build is IDE-agnostic, so any IDE that can import Maven projects (Eclipse, IntelliJ) should have no problem importing and building this repo.

Contact and Collaboration

Building a big cool project? I'm probably interested in hearing about it! Want to solicit some help, request new framework features, or just ask a random question? Drop me a line: mark@heronarts.com
