We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
Just a quick post to say that a new REPL Mode is available for processing. It's Github repo may be found here. In addition to providing all the usual features that Processing 3.0 has to offer, the mode brings 2 main features to the table:
An REPL Console This allows the user to type things in one command at a time, and view the output instantaneously (much like how an REPL Console would work for, Python, say).
Hot swapping/ Live coding This allows the user to, after starting a sketch, type in code and simply save the sketch to view any changes to the output immediately in the open sketch, without requiring to restart the sketch (assuming, of course, that the sketch was saved once before running it).
More (much, much more) details can be found on the repo's readme page, and I'll be posting an introductory video soon.
As is usual, the most convenient way to install the mode is via the Contributions Manager.
I'd really love to hear how the community thinks this has turned out- bugs, missing features, what's right, what's not, suggestions, what crossed your mind when using the mode, whether or not you liked it and absolutely anything else.
