Lily Beta Released

From Bill Orcutt comes the first beta of his JavaScript and browser based visual patching language, Lily.

Lily Patch

It’s a visual patching language, like Max/MSP, pd, or Plogue Bidule, but it is tied directly into the Mozilla framework with all of its browser functionality and XUL interface capabilities. Its a bit like Yahoo Pipes in many respects, but also has OSC functionality, which pretty much allows it to interact with any video or music production application these days, as well as a great deal of hardware such as the Arduino or MakeController or Lemur.

The videos below demonstrate more of what Lily can do. It’s a pretty exciting new direction for media art development.
