Fluxus: a Scheme engine for livecoding (pawfal.org)

Fluxus has been unmaintained for a very long time. The last time I worked on it (years ago), I remember it compiled only with a really old version of Racket (I think Racket v4).

Here's an old video of what Fluxus looks like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2O5DJTOy6EA. The video quality is bad. But the 3D stuff is clearly visible. The user in the video is typing into Fluxus from the beginning of the video. The documentation for Fluxus as I remember was some large PDF file.

Anyone else know of similar live-coding environments for 3D?

P.S: I do love using Three.js.

You might like praxis. Its being actively maintained and the author is happy to answer questions and requests.

Thank you for the tip ~! Praxis looks awesome.

Love the intro video you have - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VRtRazMYSA

I noticed you added some MIDI stuff a few days ago. Sweet :)

[EDIT] Found that createuniverses has a few Praxis videos here - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC43RpT7id6sn995kR_F0RNw


Thank you!

I need to make a video demonstrating the midi recording functionality (its implemented entirely in Lua). I need to keep it short, write a script that is succinct and to the point, use a decent microphone, keep it short, actually narrate the thing and most importantly, keep it short.


I'm working on that https://github.com/edne/PinealLoopProject inspired by fluxus, and I'm trying to use a Processing-like syntax



If you enjoy fluxus, you should also check out extempore http://extempore.moso.com.au/


Or just check out http://toplap.org/ and find almost everything to do with live coding.
