We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
I'm new to processing, just got Dan Shiffman's book.
I'm trying out the first steps where we have to export and test. The file happily saves, but I only see "export application" in the file menu - which I guess is standard.
However, when I save the file it exports automatically to ~/documents/processing/sketch_140305b… but no applet folder appears (as mentioned in the book), I have no HTML file in the folder either.
I do have: 1) sketch_140305b.pde + a file named: /application.macosx/ - this has inside of it: 2) sketch_140305b.app + a file named: /source/ - inside of that: 3) two files: sketch_140305b.pde + sketch_140305b.java
nowhere do I see a html file, or applet (see screen shot).
Can someone point me in the right direction - I'm running this on a mac and the processing is the latest version 2.1.1.
Thanks in advance!
That book was written when Processing 1 series reigned! Processing 2 series don't export Java applets anymore! :(
Even worse, from Processing 2.1+ and on, it can only export to the same OS it's running on! :-L
My advise is to also install Processing 1.5.1 for awhile, for the purpose to study that book more comfortably! *-:)
You gotta install the 1s you want. On the far top right, a rect button labeled 'Java', click there. Then choose 'Add Mode'.
Great, thanks. I had noticed that, but hadn't got round to clicking on the 'add' button to see what happened. Anyhow, they're added now.
