I’m actually working on a project that aims to facilitate the creation of
GUI externals in Pd and to easily convert source code from Max to Pd and
from Pd to Max. I’ve created a small C/C++ library (at the end, it will be
a full C library) with:
- An automatic generation of border and inlets/outlets (like Max)
- A better graphics behavior (layers and functions to clip the drawings
within the box boundaries) (like Max)
- Attributes (size, value, whatever you want) that are saved with the patch
(like Max)
- Dynamic inlets/outlets (like Max…)
- An easy management of mouse motion and keys
- Macros to convert from Max to Pd and from Pd to Max

So, here the git of the project :


You can find Mac examples in the Pd Chocolate folder, a small set of
externals that is not essential, unlike Pd vanilla, but that can be useful
(there’re a vu~ and a nbx~ that don’t have the blink effect of their
homologue). You will also find a library, much more substantial with many
quite complex GUIs dedicated to ambisonics on the git project HOA where the
codes are almost similar to those used in Max:



As you can guess, I would like to get feedbacks and advises.

The things I want to improve are:
- the automatic creation of the properties window based on the attributes
- a better captation of mouse events (right click in run mode for example)
- creation of object in a sort of « canvas » or « window » like popmenu or
entry (I want to use the clip functions of tcl/tk)

So, if you want to participate to this project, you are welcome and if you
have externals that you want to convert from Max to Pd or from Pd to Max, i
can help you.

Sorry if you have already seen this topic on one of the puredata forum but
I don't want to miss a potential helper.
