I was looking on youtube and couldn't find much in the way of tutorials for python using processing. I was wondering if there is :
On how to use it from basic to advanced?
I guess I wasn't clear. I just was looking for tutorials for Processing that work with python. The tutorials on the main site are good, but I was hoping for a pdf or book that would walk through making rudimentary games and such.
Processing is mostly Java; followed by p5.js too. ~O)
W/ few modifications, you can adapt those Java Mode tutorials to Python Mode's syntax. :-\"
yeah I am not great with Java which is why I moved to Python in the first place.
I almost feel that python isn't really supported with processing. Most people are using java instead and python is just an afterthought. I would have hoped for more videos/tutorials, but I guess you can't ask for too mcuh considering it is free and people are doing it out of the goodness of their heart.
I recommend Getting Started with Processing.py by Casey Reas, Ben Fry, and Allison Parrish.
It isn't a game programming book, but it sounds like what you are looking for.
great thank you! Does this go beyond the tutorials on the site? I want to buy it, but if it is more of a rehash, I will hold off.
That link lists the full table of contents, so you can see a pretty detailed breakdown of what it covers.
Early parts are very introductory and focus more on basics of the API that are very similar across Java/Python modes, some later parts (like functions, or data and dictionaries) are very Python specific.
