Hi, I've been playing with ninjam for a few weeks, it's very useful for the current situation (see the date and do a google search if you are from a distant future). I would like to make an external for it, so asking if others pders are interested in collaborating?
Here's some information to kick off this idea.
First of all I have a server up and running for testing the solution. Ask me in PM for the password:
The best client for now is in Reaper or you can use a VST called Jamtaba. Maybe there's a way to simply use the VST (Jamtaba - https://jamtaba-music-web-site.appspot.com/) in PD and then we don't need this external?!
A client close to what we want is the curseclient. I think it's a good starting point for us:
The Makefile is simple:
CC=gcc CXX=g++ CFLAGS = -O2 OBJS = cursesclient.o ifdef MAC CFLAGS += -D_MAC LFLAGS = -framework coreaudio -lncurses.5 -lm OBJS += ../audiostream_mac.o COMPILE_VORBIS = 1 else LFLAGS = -lncurses -lm -lasound -ljack OBJS += ../audiostream_alsa.o ../audiostream_jack.o endif OBJS += ../../WDL/jnetlib/asyncdns.o OBJS += ../../WDL/jnetlib/connection.o OBJS += ../../WDL/jnetlib/listen.o OBJS += ../../WDL/jnetlib/util.o OBJS += ../../WDL/rng.o OBJS += ../../WDL/sha.o OBJS += ../mpb.o OBJS += ../netmsg.o OBJS += ../njclient.o OBJS += ../njmisc.o CXXFLAGS = $(CFLAGS) default: cninjam cninjam: $(OBJS) $(CXX) $(CXXFLAGS) -o cninjam $(OBJS) -lpthread $(LFLAGS) clean: -rm $(OBJS) cninjam
I think the first step would be to compile njclient, being able to connect to a server (auth or anonymous). If anyone is willing to work on that or if someone have social accounts that can post this call for collaboration please do so. If successful we can then open a dedicated server for puredata.
