API documentation says library file extension is optional, but it's actually required


Fixed in Vuo version: 

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

On ARToolkit node github repository, mic reported that adding the library libAR.a to a module's dependencies as "dependencies" : [ "AR" ] doesn't work, but adding it as "dependencies" : [ "AR.a" ] does. This contradicts the documentation, which says that either should work.

For some libraries (those within Vuo.framework?), both options do work. Team Vuo should either allow both options for all libraries or fix the documentation.

Have you found a workaround?: 

Include the file extension.

We’re actually going to be doing a poll soon to ask you / the community for your input on how Vuo’s development should be funded. We’re considering changes to how much / how often people have to pay for Vuo, to try to get a lot more people using Vuo and helping fund its development. Stay tuned :)

Thanks Jaymie. What I was doing wrong: I was plugging the layer into the "Layers" port on the Render node, rather than individual layer number.

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

Kewl commented on Kewl's Discussion, “atan2(y,x): x and y switched?

The image is from 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?
