Website Enhancement

Welcome to OpenProcessing official feedback forum. Do you have an idea? Do you recognize a good idea when you see one? OpenProcessing wants to hear from you!

Any suggestions?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Application Blocked by Security Settings

    Java has updated their security parameters, the access to the Open Processing applications have been affected. Open processing team, please verify the certificates, becouse Java is blocking the applications when the users press the run button. This is the message that shows when i try yo run an app: "Application Blocked by Security Settings". The "allow" option isn't available any more :( Its blocked for default for those who don't check their certificates.

    • "Upload to OpenProcessing" plug-in for Processing Application

      I can create an "Upload to OpenProcessing" plug-in for Processing. It would be a menu item under Tools menu in Processing, which would automatically Export your sketch, .zip it, and upload it to your account, and show you your sketch in your browser.

      • allow tagging of other users sketches

        many people use no or bad tags on their sketches, it would be great to be able to improve on that by adding your own tags to other peoples sketches

        • Remixing

          A way to track 'parentage' of a sketch, when a sketch is derived from another on the site. Implementation: include a manifest with the sketch's id when downloading a zip. This information is passed back to openprocessing when the child sketch is uploaded. Inspiration: MIT Scratch.

          • Add 'enum' java syntax to Processing IDE

            'enum' coding syntax is supported by java but not by the Processing IDE.
            It would be very helpfull if we could use this java feature to produce shorter and better readable code.

            example:
            public enum Day {SUNDAY, MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY }
            Day day = FRIDAY;

            • Stop Breaking "Open in New Tab "

              It looks like links do double duty - as normal href's and by changing the page via javascript. So if you "middle click" to open in new tab, the link opens in both the new tab and in the current tab...

              • OpenProcessing Collection Side seems to transmute to a dump!

                It's a great idea to build collections in any case!
                But in the meantime there are so much rubbish collections that disfigure that page.
                My idea is to delete all collections with no links after one day of creation (and may be some additional cleanup actions).
                That would regenerate the collection side to what is was builded for - a side that provides a helpfull overview to interesting sketches!

                  If the user puts a "thumbnail.png" or "thumbnail.jpg" file in the archive, this image is automaticaly used as the app's thumb image

                          • Improve Functionality in the Comments

                            1) Allowing link for a OpenProcessing sketch that may look like that:
                            [link:123]the name of the sketch[/link] where 123 is the visualID of the sketch.
                            2) Allowing external link like [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandelbrot_set]the famous Mandelbrot set[/url].
                            3) And a link to the portfolio of the user who is commenting (by clicing on his logging name under 'comments'.

                              Would be useful to have the thumbnails expand (or show up in the 'featured' window) in the openprocessing homepage when rollingover with the mouse.

                                      yes this totally makes sense. I couldn’t update that page since the launch of the website, so a touch up would be good. Also, I need to add PC/Linux snapshots (not just Mac).

                                    • better communication between user

                                      With some sort of messaging system, or better commenting system or simply more social networking feature aka all user has a micro bloging system - like facebook status.

                                      I am not sure that is the goal of openprocessing but I would love to see a social network being developed around processing. The processing forum is good - but it's a forum lacking this layer of interactivity that social networks offer.

                                      • To see the number of comments for each sketch

                                        beside the sketch thumbnail (but without opening it) it would be nice to have an idea of the number of comments that have been written (and even something like a "new" label when the last comment is fresh)
