dict.view with output? jstree attempt
Has anyone looked into creating something along the lines of dict.view with access to keys on click, or know if there are any plans for an update to the object?
Am really happy with the recent updates to dict re hierarchy. I'm currently working on patch with a library of gamelan sequences classified by instrument, then tuning system, etc. This is fine for playback but I'm still struggling to work out a good interface for editing the dictionaries. The data is usually five or six levels down so I often resort to editing my JSON files as text or using a third party JSON viewer/editor e.g. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cocoa-json-editor/id442160773?mt=12. Ideally I would like to use something like dict.view to click on an item to either get the data or keys (depending on level) in order to insert a new object or delete or edit the data or name of the existing one.
Is it worth pursuing this or has anyone got any suggestions? Could I be using jsui or something else instead of jweb?
Have attached this morning's effort in case anyone is interested- needs the jstree_pre1 folder available here http://www.jstree.com/
did you get any further with it? Im stuck with the same problem/question…
Afraid not. I’ve been busy working towards a performance so this has had to take a back seat for now…I decided I should try to focus on things that actually make sound for a bit! I also have a feeling what I was trying to do above wasn’t going to work.
I’m planning to look at the problem again over the next couple of months so will post back here or please let me know if you think of anything.
great, let me know!
Bump and +1!
Does anybody have any clue about the possibility that dict.view be able at least to retrieve the key name when clicked? That would be so helpful…
Indeed – retrieving the key name when clicked would be outstanding – any ideas?
