Ideally there would be a way for the App to use its location as the default folder so explicit folder names didn't have to be baked in, but at least the App is working now :-).

This turns out to be because the current folder for files is the composition's location when using the Vuo Editor, but the desktop (I think) when running as a standalone App. So my App was not finding my JSON file and using the most recent values. If I add the full path to my file name the App finds my JSON file and reads changing values as expected.

It may be that the Start Time needs to be explicitly set...

Actually, the values read from the file remain fixed even after a computer restart and only change when I recompile. So I wonder if the files values are bound into the App?

You want the separator to be a linebreak. From the keyboard shortcuts section of the manual:

⌥↵ Open a Text input editor and press ⌥↵ to add a linebreak. (Which is the Option + Return Key)

'Is Time of Day After' problem


Vuo version: 

OS version: 

  • macOS 10.15

How severely does this bug affect you?: 

●●○○ — It's annoying but I can work around it.

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

'Is Time of Day After' fails to test correctly if 'Start Time' is not specified as midnight. e.g. the following occurs: Testing if 0947 is before 1659: True Testing if 0947 is before 1700: False Testing if 1017 is before 1659: True Testing if 1017 is before 1700: False

Resolved: 'Fetch JSON Tree' values read from disk are out of date

I'm using 'Fetch JSON Tree' triggered by 'Fire Periodically' to read preferences from a file that can change as the composition runs. This works fine when run within the Vuo Editor, but when compiled to a standalone App the values do not reflect the changing file state. I'm guessing they are cached at some point.

Is this a legit use case for these nodes? If so, any ideas on how to fix, i.e. flush the buffers? Thanks.

(A simple test composition has been added to show the problem.)

I see the problem. I'll work on a solution. I'll have to ask the team what the plan is for The composition view should have the previous size and pos .....
