Hap was developed by Tom Butterworth, one of the pair of developers who developed Syphon, amongst other great tools.

The main limitation as I see it is that if you build FX plug-ins in Vuo (and this applied to equally to QC) is that if you just port it directly you are limited in the UI interface tou can have. It takes extra code, in Xcode to build some of the sophisticated UIs which some video effects plug-in deploy. But if you’re ok with hard wired input ports then I think why not? Hard part is doing something genuinely original/new to the platform, there’s a bunch of low cost transition plugins already for example.

if there’s a way to execute a bundled shell script reliably then “pwd” terminal command returns the URL of current directory. Might need to set permissions of the script to be an executable with relevant admin permissions. (Be careful). Put the URL into a text file and open the text file in Vuo.

Surely establishing the correct filepath/uri is something you can put in a shell or AppleScript? Does Vuo have a way of executing scripts? (qC had several 3rd party tools to do so).
