This is a preview release of our timeline ‚Tilda‘.
The project started out as a VL clone of Interpole by u7angel, which in turn was inspired by our hijacking of the premiere timeline some years ago. It’s all about clips!
Tilda became our first larger application built in VL. So if you look inside the project, you will see a learning curve, some parts being programmed in a more traditional data flow approach, while others adopt more and more language features and programming paradigms of VL. For us it has been and still is a great deal in learning VL.
Tilda is by no means finished, there are many items on the wishlist, bugs to fix, usability to improve and expand … So it’s a WIP post and not a final contribution yet. Although, we have used Tilda in production already, and it has gone through some iterations of refactoring and streamlining. As it stands today we feel like sharing our effort. In our eyes, Tilda can become a platform for many different types of clips and data representations and their editor functions, and we are curious what it will mean to others.
Of course - it could be always cleaner and more feature complete, but then we’d probably never release it.
Tilda is now hosted publicly on GitHub. It is edited with the latest alpha:
We couldn’t migrate our issues list to GitHub, so we will need to start a new one there.
For an introduction to Tilda please refer to the readme and the help patches.
