Utilities and Extensions
Processing has Libraries and Tools to extended the code and programming environment beyond the core functionality. These are powerful ways to augment the software, but there are other ways as well. Utility and extension programs can make it easier to integrate Processing files and applications with the operating system and other applications.
This is a list of contributed utilities assembled by the Processing team and community:
- Quick Look Plugin for Mac OSX by kroko - This plugin enables users to view the contents of Processing sketches (Processing Development Environment .pde) in a Quick Look window. The plugin also enables thumbnail / icon creation, which makes it possible to browse sketches in Cover Flow.
- Live 2 Processing by Unsound - This Max4Live plugin for Ableton Live sends numerical audio peak data to Processing via OSC. Any program that can tap into OSC can use the data (SuperCollider, Blender, etc.)
- Processing Workshop Tool by Abe Pazos - A web browser based application developed on node.js and processing.js. It allows the teacher and students to see and run code written by others in the same classroom.
