Thanks Joan thats great. Got the first tool completed, attached here http://db.tt/OyqvTEuy if anyone wants a horse frame tool.
Oh, I see there is a problem in how the files are sorted for the menu… It should use alphanumeric sorting instead of alphabetic, so that tool 10 doesn't end up between tools 1 and 2.
A suggestion, what about a central store for forum members to upload their tools to and share developements with each other?
Stage 2 I suppose is how to make the data from these custom tools exportable, but I seem to remember reading your already working on that for a future version.
Here is my wildest dream:
- An online editor where you can visually create a custom tool with ease, using dragging and dropping, buttons, etc.
- You would be able to fork an existing tool, import a background image for ref, define constraints through comboboxes, etc.
- Once done, the tool could be saved as a draft in a personal space or published in a common repository.
- Then from within Kinovea, a special module would let you browse all the published tools, and import them directly.
Not all aspects are dependant on each other though. If there is a common repository of user contributed tools, even if its populated manually, the importing mechanics in Kinovea can be worked out even before the HTML5 editor is finalized.
