We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
I wrote an article on automating development processes. It's a short blurb with some ideas on how to save time and speed up all those manual tasks that eat up your time. Even if you're just using the Processing IDE (and not Eclipse, etc.), you can still benefit from automation. For me, I had a lot of manual steps for backing up my work, processing images for sketches, and copying folders whenever I made a build.
