Getting Started — Part 7

Live coding and Editor tools for examining a composition.

Update: If you're trying to recreate this composition in Vuo 1.2.4 or later, hold down the Option key while connecting the cable from the Fire Periodically node's Fired port to the Count node's Increment port. This makes a thin (event-only) cable instead of the default thick (data+event) cable.

  1. OK. We've built this composition. When we press "Run," it creates this window and counts upon it. Now, let's learn some more about Vuo by walking through a little bit of live coding. Live coding means modifying your composition while it's running. This can be handy, for example, if want to see what you're building while you're building it, or if you're creating live visuals at a show and want to mix it up.

  1. Here we have a composition that, when we press "Run," counts as such, and now we'll walk through how to build it. I'll stop this one, close it, and select "File: New Composition."

  2. For a composition that counts, I know I want to make something happen on a regular basis. Every one second, I want to produce a number. Vuo automatically gives us the "Fire on Start" node, which will produce an event when I press the "Run" button, but for this composition, we want to fire more often than that.

  1. Let's take a look at another simple composition and learn a little more about how the parts and pieces of Vuo work. This is a composition that counts. When I press Run, it produces this: a blank window with numbers counting in the center. Let's slowly walk through what's happening, and as we go through it, we'll define a few more elements in the Vuo Editor.
