We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
I have just created a new Websockets library for Processing. I now that other people have done this as well, but I have tried to implement both the server- and client-side in a single, simple to use, library. The library can be found here: https://github.com/alexandrainst/processing_websockets
It would be great to have it published on the official libraries page at some point. Initially, I would really like you guys to try out the library, and provide feedback, so that I/we can optimise it for your needs.
A little side story I am a PhD student in Aarhus (Denmark), just starting my second year. My focus is tools for makers, and the overall goal is to research what kinds of software tools are out there (creating something like a taxonomy). Additionally, I'm interested in investigating how to co-create software tool; how to collaborate on creating tools that have actual value for the end users (makers in my case - which is still quite broad :-), and what are the do's and dont's (guidelines for developing good tools).
I'm doing research through design, which means that I want to conduct my research in the wild - with you guys. I have been following the Processing community for a few years now (I have been teaching Processing for two years at the University of Aarhus in Denmark), and I'm extremely motivated for leveraging the Processing community directly in my PhD work.
