Here is an example sketch by Joshua Davis, from the hype framework that has been changed to make use of ruby syntax. The declared aim of the hype library is to provide:- A collection of classes that performs the heavy lifting so that you can create sketches with the minimum amount of code. When using the hype library to create JRubyArt sketches it is suggested that you not simply ape the hype framework examples, but tailor your sketches to take advantage of the ruby language to create even more elegant code (Code as Art), not that it is relevant here.
Unzip the library in the processing libraries folder, rename the folder
distribution folder to
library, rename the
hype.jar. Check that you can see the library from the processing-3.2.1 ide. Note that we can use snake case in place of camel case, for constants use
:: and not
. to call. The important thing to learn from this sketch is how to implement the
HCallback interface. This can be implemented as a closure (block), note we do not/should not try and use the vanilla processing method.
