How can I run external libraries with my processing.js file?

edited January 9 in JavaScript Mode

Hi,

I may be wording this wrong, but I am trying to run this code online, I am using an index.html file connecting the java and javascript libraries that are needed for the processing code to work. But I can tell I am missing a major step here, and I just don't know what it is, I don't know what to look for...

Here is the processing code, followed by the html code :

import gab.opencv.*;

import processing.video.*;

  //buffer = createGraphics(320, 240, JAVA2D);
  //size(640, 480);
  fullScreen();
    String[] cameras = Capture.list();
 if (cameras.length == 0) {
    println("There are no cameras available for capture.");
    exit();
  } else {
    println("Available cameras:");
    for (int i = 0; i < cameras.length; i++) {
      println(cameras[i]);
    }}
    cam = new Capture(this, cameras[1]);
  //cam = new Capture(this, width/2, height/2, 15);
  cam.start();
  //cam = new Capture(this, 40*4, 30*4, 15);
  // BlobDetection
  // img which will be sent to detection (a smaller copy of the cam frame);
  noCursor();
  img = new PImage(80, 60);
  theBlobDetection = new BlobDetection(img.width, img.height);

  • Unfortunately As far as I know, p.js doesn't allow to use external libraries. Other forum goers can confirm this. In your case, the typical recommendation is to migrate to p5.js, meaning you will need to code in js.

    Kf

  • thanks for your response @kfrajer ! Do you know of a program that automatically transpiles processing to js? Otherwise I will just do it manually...the only problem is I don't think all the functions in processing are possible in js, so my code just may not be possible to migrate.

  • Processing.js cannot use Java libraries. You'll have to find the equivalent JavaScript library, or not deploy as HTML and JavaScript.

    Honestly, I'd recommend dropping the idea of using Processing.js in this case. I wrote more about why here, but basically: you should only use Processing.js if you have some existing Processing code that does not use any Java libraries. That's not what you have, so you shouldn't use Processing.js.

    Instead, I'd recommend either deploying as a Java application, or starting over with P5.js and doing the whole thing in JavaScript.

    Do you know of a program that automatically transpiles processing to js?

    This is exactly what Processing.js does. This won't help you though, because the real problem is the Java libraries you're using. These cannot be magically converted to JavaScript.

  • @KevinWorkman thank you. That clarifies things a lot.
