I'm having a level beginner question about XML trees. I'm trying to get the Artist Name, Song Title and File Location for the iTunes songs from the iTunes Library XML.

I'm able to somehow locate the subtree of a song, but then I can't find how to locate the Name or Title because they all start with subtree "Key" as name, then have "Name" or 'Title" as content, but the title or name itself is yet another subtree with name "String", all the same again on the same line.

Should I be using Split Text from here on ? Can't I do this because the way the XML is written or because of the node not considering the same line as a subcontent ? Thanks

Joining the composition, it assumes your iTunes Library is in -/Music/

I'll have some time over the next week (after election campaigning on Climate action) to check it out. I have a few interesting datasets I've been wanting to get into Vuo. I tend to use CSV out of spreadsheets but it's easy enough to use GREP to XMLify them.

Bodysoulspirit posted a new Feature Request, “Scrollable Port Popups

Scrollable Port Popups

Often I use the port popup (click one port) to get information, for example a path or some text etc.

Problem is the preview often is too short and I end up using a Console Window :(

Could it not just be but scrollable ? Like preview 3 lines instead of one and scroll the rest if more ?

For example here below if the url was way larger I could horizontal scroll it, if it had several lines (tree) I could vertical scroll it :

I know there are also these yellow notepad like popups that sometimes come up (haven't understand when they do and when they not) and that display more info already, which is great, but a longer one could still require scroll.

Plus A - I think the port popup looks better then the yellow pad and B - we have port popups + yellow popups = 2 popups. And C - The port popups can be floated which can be great too sometimes.

Of course I assume popovers are rendered only when opened so I guess that would not affect the editor performance.

Great!!! I'll try it out as soon as I can! I'll try and set some time aside tomorrow to do that. I'm away next week so I'll really try and squeeze it in. This is amazing!

Philip, we just published a Vuo 1.2.6 alpha release that includes a fix for this bug. Despite it being an alpha release, the changes are few and isolated enough that — other than the new nodes added in the release — I would consider it safe to use in production.

Chris and anyone else who'd like to be testers — we just published a Vuo 1.2.6 alpha release that includes XML/JSON nodes. We'd appreciate if you could try them out and let us know if they do what you need them to do.

The final 1.2.6 release will include much more stuff, including CSV nodes, but we wanted to get your feedback on the XML/JSON nodes sooner.

If you find any problems with the alpha release, please post a bug report. If you have questions/suggestions about the scope of this feature request (what the new nodes will/won't be able to do), please comment here. For other questions/suggestions, probably best to a new discussion thread so it's easier to follow the conversation.

Azy commented on 2bitpunk's Feature Request, “Published Ports - Input reordering

Great news that this request has been chosen. feels bad when I don't plan ahead accordingly and have to republish all the ports if i missed one that I want at the top.
