in case you want a custom ui, and want pd only for the "it's running in the background" part, i've been experimenting with pd+osc+qml and it's pretty nice! but i guess if one needs much/fast data between pd<->qml, osc might not be enough... (i already got "bad feeling" sending waveform average datas over osc)

so it's really itching in my fingers to make an app (like pd(droid)party) with qt (that supposedly can compile for every os!) and libpd (i know only that it exists). and use pd patches for the "backend" and qml scripts for the "frontend"...

but don't hold your breath, creating (cross) compiling and "advanced" (qt) c/c++ code is something where i seem to rage quit pretty early... *nudge nudge, wink wink*

qt: https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/supported-platforms.html
qml: https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qmlapplications.html
osc: https://github.com/hecomi/qml-osc


ps. in case you try my fork of qml-osc, it seems i broke single values, hups... todo...
pps. there is also https://www.qt.io/qt-for-python but meh...
