Filtered node browser when making connections

Feature wish:

  • start a connection (either upwards or downwards)
  • left double click opens node browser
  • node list is filtered depending on current node/pin, showing only matching nodes

sounds interesting, but how would you decide to which pin the connection ends? Or should it just create the node without making a connection?

Hey io,

good question, and obviously i did not really think this through.

I came up with this idea when showing vvvv to someone else.
The node browser can be quite intimidating for someone new to vvvv,
and i thought a feature like this would make things easier for experienced
users as well.

So yeah, what to do in case of ambiguity?

The node could be created without the connection being closed, but still
dangling around - and possible input nodes being highlighted as usual.
