That sounds very interesting.
Please share the links here in forum, if the documents and SDK are reading for download
Yes, will do.
We will release for build#100 with the new API set.
Documentation is a mix of several languages at this moment.
Meanwhile, some preliminary tips:
- For entry level and basic plug-ins: a basic HTML knowledge and basic programming skills are required. (you can just use one of our examples and modify it at your convenience).
- For spectacular graphical plug-ins: I suggest a HTML5 update review, there are many new capabilities and beautiful and amazing demos.
- For extreme plug-ins: If a senior developer with large experience want to go even far, there are very impressive WebGL (Accelerated graphical platform for the web) new demos, just google it and you will find them. Most modern smartphones today support it with impressive results.
Your plug-in will be compatible automatically with all robotic heads that we support (a few specific API functions can only be used with specific heads)
At the same time, your plug-in will work in all platforms (HTML5 browsers) that we mention before.
Tools, quick overview:
Each developer has own preferences. We test several development platforms, and from the free side, the best from our point of view for programming (not for Web design), is Aptana Studio 3 (eclipse based).
For design (and programming), there are many, but from a photographer point of view, probably you are familiar with Adobe, check if Web design tools are in your package. (Adobe tools are great, but not free)
If your plug-in is complex and you paid for licenses, tools, services, developer fees, etc. and you want to release your work as a non-free app (just with small donations or a small fee to compensate your development expenses and research efforts or just as a business), we will recommend take a review of Titanium Studio (same people today of Aptana). Its a excellent tool and its free. You will finish your Panoshoot app quickly and you will be able to port it to android (google play store) and iPhone/iPod(apple store) with less efforts. Note that you will need open an account and get the app approval on these stores in order to sell your Panoshoot plug-in/app). Programming experience is required for these options.
For high end Panoshoot commercial apps (rare case) , you can choose the traditional Android / Apple / Blackberry / Windows SDK's. They are more complex and don't provide a good balance between quick release/ functionality if you don't have enough experience with these tools. Most of these tools are free.
Hope will be useful for you and other users/developers.
