Hype looks like a great tool for one-off sites like the provided demos, but integrating animated objects created with Hype looks nearly impossible. WooGrit produces this js:
… which references resources such as http://static.tumultco.com/hype/gallery/WooGrit/WooGrit_Reso...
Hype will certainly have its place with the coming onslaught of HTML5 ads (/ducks), but from this developer's point of view, its a niche product.
Within Hype, you can compose custom js functions to be run in response to user actions, like mouse down. Those functions are pure js and, as such, can use any libraries included on the same page which embeds your Hype document. Hype documents also vend a js API so external scripts can trigger animations or scene changes. With those two features, the Hype document can become a seamless part of an existing web page.
I'm curious to hear more about your needs, though! Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to chat some more.
I was also a bit surprised initially by the bundling of everything - html, css, js - into a single .js file. Certainly seems like a smooth solution for your targeted user base though. Copy/paste to embed, upload.
I'd be very interested in an 'export components' feature whereby you could export formatted css/html into distinct files/views for straightforward incorporation in larger projects, etc. (I admittedly have yet to try it, so maybe something like this is supported.)
You guys have impeccable timing as well. I'll certainly be picking up a copy!
