    You'll get the same upsides as other open source projects: community contributions, bug fixes, etc. and a warm feeling inside from doing something that is mostly to benefit other users. You don't have to maintain the OS project, that's the community's job, you'll just push out the upstream code. Mozilla doesn't maintain all of the Firefox derivatives, Tracktion Software doesn't maintain all of the Tracktion Engine derivatives, etc.

    To be fair, win32 applications written in 1995 still run on Windows today... :/ and I'd imagine ancient a.out 32-bit linux apps can be made to (with a little bit of trouble). So really it's just Apple.

    but the more modern the computer gets and the os, the more likely it will become for things to break. It's understandable that you want to write something that works forever, but these times are long gone and it's very unlikely to code something like that anymore. So you'll need to at least recompile things once in a while. But even compilers change over time.

    Even this is no guarantee. You can only try to limit the amount of maintenance work by limiting the amount of dependencies. But still, these dependencies might rely on other things, even if it's only some kernel-features. You might be able to write something that you just need to compile once in a while but you never know, if something you need will be deprecated. The only way to guarantee software being runnable in 15 years is to write them to work on old homecomputers like C64, Apple II, ZX Spectrum, as

    In the computer world: nothing is compatible forever. You might be able to stretch the compatibility but there's progress in computers. Just look at Apple-Macs. Programs from 15 years ago do not run anymore on modern Macs, no matter how good they were programmed. Maintenance will always be a part of software engineering.

    The OnKeyEvent() flow works as expected with period key; it treats it as ASCII. SWELLAPP_PROCESSMESSAGE is sent and message loop receives it correctly. It looks like that VK_DELETE is interpreted as period and messes my keyboard map. Still unsure if I have to workaround the issue on the application level or just make a patch for VK_OEMS_X.

  • Posted by Gio (79.130.25.x) on April 11 2021, 3:27am in 5682:
    Development is done using the latest Debian stable (Debian 10), releases Debian 7 -- GDK3. It happens to both, greater-than character (which is essentially the same key, works) it's just the period that is not working - my implementation also seems to work, I mean if replace period with something else it works as expected. Anyway, I'll have a deeper look and if I find something I will post here. Thanks!

  • Posted by Justin on April 11 2021, 2:09am in 5682:

  • Posted by Vitali (195.191.162.x) on March 11 2021, 8:05am in 5637:
    I think Buy One is asking for pinning tracks, not excluding undo points. That is the reason he/she needs disabling undo points.

  • Posted by Justin on March 11 2021, 4:18am in 5637:
    That too will potentiall cause problems with the undo system. I suppose some way to make the TCP display order desynchronized from the track number would be what you want?

  • Posted by Justin on March 11 2021, 1:00am in 5639:

    The option to delete specific undo point already exists in the Undo history context menu but it's manual and inaccessible via API

  • Posted by Buy One (178.93.229.x) on March 10 2021, 11:06pm in 5637:

    Nope. Midi must be implemented in the first place. Or you try to reverse engineer how it works internally and see, if adding something is possible. But it's only worth the time, if you are deep into nerding stuff like that already. Maybe adding triggers to the keys are possible but tbh, you can buy a regular midi-keyboard much cheaper instead ;)

    I always was curios, why Lua, but not Javascript?

  • Posted by Mespotine (80.187.117.x) on February 3 2021, 7:56pm in 5575:
    For starters, Lua in Reaper gives you a lot to work with, so I'd recommend this for absolute beginners. And if you like coding and have an idea for an app that you want to have, check programming languages that are recommended for this kind of app. The rest will automatically happen as you go on on your journey.

    Macrohard: Winamp was sold in January 2014 & the new owners never provided a new version with AOL de-listing their version prior to the sale going through. The app is still out there but it doesn't relate much to the desktop experience (e.g. no skins) & at almost 8yrs old, there's far better & still supported options to go for as its very much hit & miss on whether it still works or not (assuming you're getting a non-hacked version).

    You know you can ask the devs to implement those features. ;) Just saying.

    Do you adore Linux? It must be really good, but it still lacks of some good products on DAW market.

  • Posted by Justin on January 31 2021, 7:24pm in 5565:
    I still implement a lot of things, yes

  • Posted by Vitali (195.191.162.x) on January 31 2021, 11:41am in 5565:
    Okay, got it. But do you still miss some feature in REAPER and wanna implement it soon?

    What about releasing two versions, one that is entirely open source and free of proprietary components, and one that is the "full" version, proprietary parts included. Similar to how Google has Chromium and Chrome.

    So that means ``the interpreted program, to the interpreter, is just data'' but I have to make the scripts available to the user in order to comply with the license.

    Cool idea with layers! If it will be implemented) I'm just developing a plugin de- breather, and it draws hints where there is breathing and theshold lines, right on the items. But it doesn't look very good, when it draws over the envelopes.And yea, on windows mad flickering( I use js_ReaScriptAPI). Let`s do FR on Cockos forum!

    I try not to remember these things... if I did I'd probably get discouraged from continuing.

    Yeah, for small things it can be good. Though I suppose I do it in my head anyway (in the shower or on a run)

    Most annoying, in terms of "I got it! Oh, no I don't. But now, I got it! Hmm. No. I don't. BUT NOW..."

    Doing it by hand on paper is actually a good advice, if you are stuck with your code on a code-logic level. Having to write that on paper forces you to think about it more, as you spend more time on every character and functionname. So if you're stuck, try the pen&paper approach. It's probably too tedious to do for entire projects, but small bits can benefit from it.

    I’m guessing you should’ve done reaper_sws-x86_64.so instead?

    I put the files reaper_sws-aarch64.so, sws_python.py and sws_python64.py in the correct folders, namely .py files in scripts and .so files in userplugins, but i don't get an "Extension" tab on the top of the window ... Help please

    Justin, I was very inspired by your answer! And the idea came up. If you do decide to make native hooking in arrange window, it was cool to do it in layers. For example. DrawBackground() // Native draw -------------------------> Some custom drawing DrawGrid() // Native draw -----------------------> Some custom drawing DrawItemsBackground() // Native draw -----------------------> Some custom drawing DrawItemsContents() -----------------------> Some custom drawing DrawItemsEnvelopes() Etc.
