This is just a thought but I was wondering how difficult it would be to have a “Headless” App template with Tinderbox? This kind of defeats the point of using Cinder as a graphics library but with the new official Linux support i’ve been thinking about some RPI audio / lighting ideas that would be great if I could write using Cinder (and possibly some favourite blocks like Ci-Xtract and Ci-DMXusbPro) but without the overhead of creating a graphics context etc.
If the device doesnt have a display will the app run regardless? Perhaps the window creation overhead isnt even that much, again i’m just wondering whether Cinder might be a valid tool to use for embedded projects or whether I should just use a different kit / language. (maybe this is all already possible)
Cinder is an awesome creative c++ library even without the graphics stuff (audio, timeline animation, events, filesystem etc) though I don’t know how tightly coupled the graphics are to the main App…
Any feasibility thoughts on an embedded Cinder target, RPI etc?
