Hi,

I just committed a little sunday afternoon project. I think I figured out out a good way to wrap processing-js. I've got a little demo working of circle that expands and contracts and follows the mouse around. If you've ever looked at the processing-js page you'll know the demo I'm talking about.

Lots more functions to wrap, and I've got more work to do on a better way to expose some of the things that processing exposes as global variables, but I think this is going to work very nicely! If anyone is interested in helping out let me know!

If you want to take a look, clone the repository and then open up the proctest.html file under doc/static

Brad,
That's pretty neat. I have an interest in contributing to Skulpt and would like to discuss my ideas. Would you please connect with me on my personal email? david.ge...@gmail.com
Thanks
David

Thank you very much for providing this processing-js addon.  I would like to help and add the missing functions so that I can use height, width, bezier and the like.  I have a couple of questions:
 
1. Is it a matter of adding elements to the skulpt / src / lib / processing / __init__.js file?
2. Is this kind of wrapping necessary for using processing js libraries, such as toxiclibs.js?
 
If you point me in the right direction I wouldnt mind doing the labor, I may be deterred though if this is necessary every time I need to use another javascript library alongside processing js.

Hi Raymond,

I'm glad someone else is interested in hacking on the processing stuff. See below for some answers:

Yes, hopefully what I have already done can serve as a pattern for you to follow.  What I have done may or may not be the best way to do it.  Feel free to let me know if you get into it and think you have a better way. 

 
2. Is this kind of wrapping necessary for using processing js libraries, such as toxiclibs.js?

This is a good question  I haven’t looked at any of the processing libraries.  If these are simply used behind the scenes by processing.js then probably no further work is needed other than to include the JS files.  But if you want to make them act like python modules, or if they expose additional functions that you can call as a user of the library then my guess is that yes, you are going to have to wrap them in some way.  You can look at something like Math or the random module to see how to do a pretty simple wrapper. 

It would be nice to come up with a general way to automatically wrap various javascript libraries, but I haven’t really found the solution yet.

Feel free to contact me once you've taken a look and we can try to work out any specific issues you run into.
