Thanks. I decided to go with something a little less official sounding
D.A.P.S - Digital Audio Plugins Streamlined
pkg-config names are daps-plugin-x.y and daps-gtkui-x.y . sooner or
later an optional support lib will come around. that will be plain
Over the weekend and throughout today, I've overhauled this thing to
where visually it is much cleaner and better organized.
- Code shuffling and segmenting
- Changed the code style (mine is similar to the stdc++ )
- Public API continues to use camel cased class names
- Added a few MACROS that cleanup insane looking c++ templating
- Worker - all function pointers connected
- URID - all function pointers connected
- Data Access - all function pointers connected
- Headers present for all data-only exts
- State supports save and restore but not map and make path (yet). hpp
Not Quite Yet Supported:
- Anything not part of the Official LV2 Specification
- Extra Mixins segmented and mobbed into an "extras.hpp" header
Since Lars' original work was already stable... I'm staging up a 1.0.0
release on git hub until I get the time to make a little website.
Folks using lv2-c++-tools shouldn't have to hard of a time switching to
this API if they want to.
And, as an extra-added bonus. I whipped up the beginnings of an LV2 waf
bundler Tool (tools/waf/lv2.py) . This guy supports so-renaming for a
plugin, and grabbing resources via an lv2_resources property. If a
resource just so happens to have a "ttl.in" extension, it'll get
processed as a "subst" task.
