Vvvv for web design

Hello all.

I am looking into designing my website with vvvv. I’m completely new to web design and it’s terminology. I have no HTML, XML etc. experience.

I do have experience with object oriented patching programs (PD, Max, Bidule) which is why i’m interested in using vvvv to design my website.

I’ve read the ‘A Dataflow Graph Based Approach to Web Application Development’ paper. Exciting stuff. I don’t remeber the date of the paper…so where is vvvv in it’s current state as far as being a viable web design application?

Am I able to just dive in, design my own website patch, and upload it?

Are there any tutorials for website design with vvvv?

thanks so much!

Hey. The paper was written last year in April. Since this time there havn’t been many approvements of the web components in vvvv. Within the next release there will be nodes for retrieving database informations, which opens up new possibilities

So far you can use the HTTP-Server and HTTP-Receiver node to directly serve pages out. The computer where vvvv is running with its website patch will be the webserver. Note that the build in HTTP server is a very basic implementation without sessions support . From experience i know that small websites are very nice to patch. As soon as the project is getting more complex it gets quite tricky.

Are there any tutorials for website design with vvvv?
No not yet. You are probably not german right? hmm… still you can try to understand my thesis You can also contact me via skype-> davidbruell

I have used vvvv to create webpages for my gallery (work in progress!) on my website, but it was more to automatically create thumbnails and links from a folder of images, it was much easier than doing it manually, but for actual design Im not sure of its ease of use!

we should set up a module pack for hierachical tag patching…

definetly! also writing tuts are important

and a XPath node with SetSlice semantics, as sven recently pointed out.

The computer where vvvv is running with its website patch will be the webserver.

again, i apologize for my lack of knowledge here…

okay, so i only have one laptop computer. can i set my laptop up to be a webserver? does this mean that i’d always have to have my laptop running?

From experience i know that small websites are very nice to patch. As soon as the project is getting more complex it gets quite tricky.

well, my website won’t be anything too complicated. i’m going for a minimal design…
