I know that Pd is not standalone
<https://puredata.info/docs/faq/standalone>, but I wonder how to build
an entire Pd project with libraries, externals, helps, abstractions,
settings, tclplugins into an executable (not an installer).
Three goals are persistents :
* Use Pd in schools or in workshops. Often students have no
administrator rights on computers, are note able to install
softwares. And we loose them when we have to download Pd + 10 needed
libraries + our project.
* Share big project
* Do not interfere with other pd installations (like settings file, or
Some ways how big project work around these issues :
* Egregore, which have to manage different strategies for O.S. A
script launches Pd executable + libraries. Which seems the easiest way.
* Purr Data, a modern approach, but a fork
* CEAMMC Pd : https://github.com/uliss/pure-data, which seems a
We could discuss about these solutions.
Is there a simple tutorial about building pd for each platform
containing our folders, libraries, settings, tcl interface, and compress
it as a folder for instance ? Is it possible to build from just one
computer (x-compilation) ? Sub-purpose would be to maintain all project
in order to be up to date : download or update Pd and all needed
libraries for each platform (Deken seems not allowing that now)
Thanks for any tip.
Sharing knowledges : I'm not "compilation-friendly", if some people are
interested to go deeper inside Pd, we could organize like an online
learning session (master class) with a Pd Yoda Master ? We could
