[DDM] Node JS and AIM Client

It wasn’t easy. It was frustrating. But at least I can see the result. It wasn’t bad, well it’s working but I’m not easily satisfied with the result.

Okay, these past two days I’ve been working the client side of my project. At first I want to do it with just simple HTML and Javascript. But it turns out I can’t send OSC message directly from web browser. After hours searching about this problem, most of the solutions that work involving Node JS as a bridge server. I never use Node JS before but because this is the only (easy) way to solve my problem then I have no choice.

Learn Node JS wasn’t easy but was’t that hard too, well at least for me :p. Using Express web framework, I manage to create both client (i.e. the thing runs using web browser) and the bridge server all entirely in Node JS application. The client itself just basic interface for the application setting. Image below is the screenshot of the client

I also manage to integrate this with my Pure Data patch and of course it works. I still need to make the client response better and also need to clean up my patch. It still a long way to go but I’ll manage ^_^.

Btw, maybe you notice that I mention “AIM” in this blog title and you’re right, it is my project name, Angklung In Motion. Basically Angklung In Motion means Angklung using Leap Motion :D.
