cmm Also seems worth asking: has anyone had any luck with the cyclone objects?
now we are on Pd 0.48, so cyclone should work now. Also, something else has changed from the earlier part of this thread: the
m_pd.h file needed by the externals now lives in
cmm to confess that I'm struggling a bit trying to work out a method to compile and install based on the above discussion, has anyone got a set of instructions that I could try to follow?
It really depends on the build method used by the externals that you want to compile. In the case of cyclone, it seems that it is using pd-lib-builder. Looking at the built-in readme it seems that you can simply do:
make PDINCLUDEDIR=/usr/local/include/libpd PDLIBDIR=/root/Bela/projects/pd-externals install
PDLIBDIR points to the path where the built externals will be copied (this is one of the paths were our Pd wrapper checks for externals).
However, the above fails, because
cyclone needs some more header files than the ones we ship with
libpd (maybe I should just include them all?). So you will have to grab a copy of our Pd fork here and put it on the board, e.g.: in
/root/pure-data. At that point, change the line above to
make PDINCLUDEDIR=/root/pure-data/src/ PDLIBDIR=/root/Bela/projects/pd-externals install
also make sure your Bela code is updated to the latest version (which will guarantee the header files you get from our pure-data fork will match the version of libpd you have installed)!
Doing the above successfully builds and install cyclone (it takes about 10min). Then I verified that I can create a cyclone object in a Pd patch (e.g.:
[cyclone/delay~]), so it seems to work, but I have not tested functionalities.
