I’d like to vvvv for configuring another dataflow-based project I’m working on, so I don’t have to build my own graphical user interface. So far, I know to write custom plugins. As I’d like to export the configuration to an XML file, I’d like to know if it is possible to write a plugin that can access and iterate over all blocks and the corresponding connections of the patch it is placed in.
you can traverse the graph with plugins, by importing IHDEHost and accessing the RootNode property, but i fear it won’t suffice in your case, because it’s not possible to retrieve the connections as of yet.
another approach would be to use the nodes [PatchAlias (VVVV ActivePatch](https://vvvv.org/documentation/PatchAlias-(VVVV-ActivePatch) and [GetPatch (VVVV](https://vvvv.org/documentation/GetPatch-(VVVV). see their help patches for further explanation. you would get the xml representation of the patch and could further process it with xslt, xpath or your own custom plugins.
