In earlier posts I talked about using Processing to create Cytoscape plugins, and also about the new OpenGL rendering engine for Processing, OPENGL2. This engine introduces several improvements over the original OPENGL renderer, and it is already available in the latest pre-release of Processing, 0194. A few days ago, I put together a simple template project for Eclipse that attempts to make writing Processing-based plugins for Cytoscape a little easier. Now I updated this template to use the OPENGL2 engine as the renderer for the plugin. Download here.

Cytoscape is a cross-platform, open source application for visualization and analysis of networks. It is widely used in the field of Systems Biology to visualize different types of biological networks (like protein-protein interactions). It also has a plugin mechanism for extending its core functionality. Cytoscape is written in Java, so this open the possibility of using Processing to create Cytoscape plugins. I just put together a small template for creating Processing plugins for Cytoscape using Eclipse, keep reading for more details.
This is a short post, just to give a “preview” of the work currently undergoing on OSX and GStreamer. A year ago, Ole Andre Ravnas, the author of OABuild, released a proof-of-concept GStreamer plugin to do video capture on OSX. Here is the full discussion that took place on bugzilla at that time, and here the plugin code that Ole Andre released. Read the rest of this entry »
