Using max in a browser?

March 28, 2008 | 9:20 pm

‘Hello World’

->Noob< -

Can you use max/msp/jitter in a browser, say firefox? for instance, i could create a generative environment that can be embedded into HTML or Flash or something?

Had a search before posting, got a jargon filled geek post or two…

So, any pointers appreciated.

take a look at processing.org.
not quite max, more like java. There’s some beautiful stuff done with it.

search "LILY", a graphic java app.

Cheers guys,

Cool, I’m aware of Lily and Processing. I’m trying to insatll Lily but i have no idea how to get started with it.

If Max 5 is ‘max for the next 20 years’ shouldn’t it have some web functions? Will this be a feature in 5?

That’s Java_script_, and it’s at http://www.lilyapp.org
As for the comment below on Flash not being big for audio, you might want
to have a look at http://lab.andre-michelle.com and

geek here ;-)
Cheers

The internet is a fad. It will never catch on.

Interesting discussion from a few months back:

Note the bullet point: "robust html rendering engine in patchers (with patcher interaction via html JS)"

If you want to control your Max patches from a browser, that is already possible:

Thanks for the replies people, I think processing is the direction I will head down for the moment.
