A while ago I interfaced mypaint with a themerin using open sound control protocol*. Since then mypaint have evolve and now my hackish experiment doesn’t work anymore. I am at it right now using the git master branch and part of it is working, for example I can change the radius, colour and set the brush using my smartphone (with a free open sound control application connecting to mypaint listening on udp://mypaintip:9997).
Right now the implementation is in document.py CanvasController, but before (in 2013) I was able to make a call to model.stroke_to(); from within this class - nor anymore in the master branch.
Looking for advice, where is the best place to interface mypaint? For example, I want to control mypaint in the following manner:
- stroke_to (possible to specify a layer & use another stroke_to on different layer)
- zoom view mode (possible to remove the cursor?)
- layer mode (multiple, screen)
- pick a background
I think it might be a good thing to have a touchscreen interface to control mypaint using standard UI (sliders, buttons, x-y pad, colour wheel) on a cheap tablet. Anyone willing to tackle this or help me?
