@Bodysoulspirit, the iTunes music library is in a special (Apple-specific) XML format called a property list

Thanks for the info about that !

Possibly we could enable the Make Tree from XML node to detect if the XML is a property list, and if so, turn the keys into element names and the values into content.

Ok so either like that or as a specific Make Tree from Apple Property Lists node perhaps ? Would perhaps keep the regular node faster if less code ?

Well ok if this is so specific to Apple I could imagine a new feature request though if it is more work !

Anyone else interested in using the iTunes file or other property lists in Vuo ?

So you mean all other .plist OSX files would work as well ?

Somehow related interest from @vascoarmartins : Read iTunes playlists Feature Request

The image is from https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atan2 and they use atan2(y,x).

Anyway, depending on the software, it's either atan2(x,y) or atan2(y,x). For this function, it could be simply documented by "atan2(x,y)". Thanks.

Nooooo! :p Can you think of anything different between when it works and when it doesn't? For example, you had more applications running / more CPU load when it didn't work? Have you tried breaking down the composition into smaller pieces to try to narrow down the problem?

@Bodysoulspirit, the iTunes music library is in a special (Apple-specific) XML format called a property list — which is convenient for some purposes, but unfortunately not for locating items in the XML.

Confirmed (and there still seem to be some problems in 1.2.6 alpha1). We'll work on getting this fixed.

In the meantime, if you go to Tools > Open User Modules Folder, you can see the subcomposition files and rename them without accents. You'll have to restart Vuo Editor to reload the subcompositions with their new names.

No, that's the usual way for atan2 to work — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atan2#Illustrations

As your illustration shows, 0 radians (0°) is at the point x=1, y=0 — but since it's standard for the arguments to atan2 to be y then x, you would call atan2(0,1) to get this value.

Similarly, for π/2 radians (90°), at the point x=0, y=1, you would call atan2(1,0).

I guess they put the arguments as y then x because the arctangent uses the ratio y/x.

Chris (@cwilmsloyalist), you need quotes around part of the XPath expression — replace /diplomas/program[code=scan] with /diplomas/program[code='scan'].

@Bodysoulspirit commented on @Bodysoulspirit's Feature Request, “Add Noise to List

You can actually do this with Calculate List, which has functions for perlin and simplex noise (and random numbers). Example attached.

Coool gonna check that out, thanks !

And perplexed at why it reappeared yesterday...
