Put the 3rd part code dependencies Vuo and Vuo Editor use in the FAQ

Can I ask that the 3rd party framework/licence listing page be moved into the FAQ because this is not the first time I haven’t been able to find it on this site.

I know it's here somewhere but even a site wide google search has failed to locate it. I just found the info i was after, but when i couldn't recall any of the frameworks Vuo used, it wasn't possible for me to find even this blog page (see below) . I had to use very specific tokens to find this blog entry:

If you'd like a behind-the-scenes peek at how Vuo is implemented, I can tell you about a few more open-source projects that help Vuo do its job:

Qt, a cross-platform GUI framework, is the basis for Vuo's editor. It also underlies Vuo's automated tests.
ØMQ helps Vuo's editor communicate with a running composition. The editor can send commands to the composition ("Pause!" "Stop!"), and the composition can send debugging information to the editor ("The Recur node just emitted an event!").
libdispatch helps Vuo run compositions as fast as possible by using multithreading. When Vuo sees that two or more nodes can be run at the same time (because they don't depend on each other), Vuo uses libdispatch to run them concurrently.
Graphviz is a tool for drawing diagrams with nodes and edges (like Vuo compositions). Vuo uses the Graphviz file format, with a few additions, to store compositions. Graphviz helps Vuo lay out your nodes and cables neatly on the canvas.


Translation widget — "Select Language" option at top of page with automated translation

For those of you whose primary language is not English, would a translation widget make it easier to browse vuo.org?

Or do you already have a convenient way to translate text in your browser?

The widget would use an automated translator like Google Translate. Here is roughly how it might look (source), but with different styling and different language options —


Notes from Team Vuo

Vuo Pro: 

No — available with both Vuo CE and Vuo Pro


●○○○ — Up to a few days of work


●●○ — Could expand community

Embed movies from Vimeo/YouTube onto Vuo forum posts

Sometimes one wants to link to a video on Youtube or Vimeo and have it appear on the page not just as a link. Often videos are larger than 250MB so they can't be uploaded to vuo.org also and this would provide a work around and save Team Vuo the data serving costs.

Implemented in Vuo version: 

Remix Corner [On Vuo Webpage]

Currently there are two forums on Vuo:

  • Discussions
  • Questions & Answers

I think it would be great to have a third forum that is intended for people to post Vuo Compositions for the community to use and remix! Rules of this Remix Corner would be that everything is open source, possibly if you wanted to use the composition in productions simply credit [Remix Corner]. It would be fun to see how everyone can contribute to lots of different experiments, adding their own ideas, etc. People could also share original artwork, videos with alpha etc.
