"processing" app for creating advanced javascript modules

The websites I visited were doing some amazing stuff by combining this processing app with java script.

http://eyeos-apps.org/content/show.php/ … ent=111877

I know so little about java script, so I don't know if we need this processing app or not. I know javascript is already used within oneye but this seems more advanced and there is an updated version on Github. (0.5 I think).  I don't know if either of them do anything because nothing happened when I launched them.  I think it's more like something you call from inside your script, like a library, but I needed to ask the programmers about it to see if it's worth my time to grab some of that fancy java script code and data files from the websites promoting the processing app and see if they work in oneye or not.

Re: "processing" app for creating advanced javascript modules

You can use that application to run simple scrips, saved as PDE files inside oneye. I didn't test it anyway.

Re: "processing" app for creating advanced javascript modules

These didn't seem like just simple little scripts. There's a 20 minute long (at least) animated video  hosted on mozilla. Another full page js app featured a fish and it would follow your pointer around with some naturally humorous results.  Food would appear and the object was to help the fish get to the food before it starved.  Another video was made by a fellow Amigaphile and features Amiga Inc.'s corporate logo, the bouncing boing ball in an infinite loop. Another was an ever popular aquarium scene. I don't remember the other two or three good ones.  All I got a handful of code when I download the pages in opera, so I'll have to see if I can swim through the directory tree and find the data to make the animations and games work. Even if it doesn't work properly with oneye, I would like to have that long animation for my collection of weird and wonderful things.  I did manage to snag the data for the fish tank without too much trouble and could test the "Processing" app with it, when I get a chance.

I read a little of the docs, and yep, that's the first thing it said.  We were going to save a pde file.  I don't know what a pde file is or how to save one so I didn't get any farther than that.  But no problem, old programmers never die, they just change titles and job descriptions.  smile  I'll see if I can plug the aquarium into my local oneye 0.9.6.  It's easier to test that way and I doubt I have any redistribution rights to it anyway.  I'll install without "Processing" app to see if it runs and either way install the latest version I can find and try again.  As far as version numbers, the github version seems to be 9.4, but I'm pretty sure I saw other version numbers, including one that was 9.8, in the comments of the various appcodes.

I also wonder if that browser written almost entirely out of js would run with "Processing: installed.  Now I got to try it again! 

In addition to attempting to fix the eyeSQL app (as related on the FB group), I am also trying to fix a glitch in the "Switch Users" app and I need to see if I can figure out what's wrong with the "Public Monitor" app too.  And while I'm swimming in unfamiliar code, I might as well see if I can clean up eyeDocs and eyeWelcome to be presentable and somewhat useful.  EyeDocs and the existing eyeHelp probably need to be combined into a single app. If both are to remain, then they must serve different purposes somehow.  EyeHelp might be good for displaying notes about individual apps, while eyeDocs covers the core, for instance. (As an aside: it would be cool if eyeHelp popped up when the F1 key was pressed, but maybe that's just me?)
