    Hi Pierre

    Thanks for sharing!.

    You have a cool front-end there with interesting stuff that would be nice to have for our canvas front-end (like immediate values on nodes, connection anchors, multiple tabbed views, a minimap :) ...)

    If only I could suggest to put some love on the on the coder-colors :)

    Also, for the next videos, crank up the microphone recording levels, the sound was quite low.

    what do you mean? The link are a little bit too colorful, I know... but it help a lot to distinguish from one link to another when they are crossing. And it can be disable in the preferences... As I am typing this, I think I can take the type color, and play with the Hue and Saturation a little from one link to the other. like this, not so much color, but visually different when crossing, and the color indicate the type supported by the link... I will test this and come back with a picture or a short video.
    And I missed 2 features in the video:

    • with shift, the user can move all the links going from an ouput pin to another compatible output (of a possibly different node);
    • a right click on a pin give a popup menu with all the possible connections, including ports and creating ports. this make very easy to connect a pin to another one not even on the screen.

    ok for the mic... I didn't notice.

    @craouette You have done some nice work to your graph editor, many improvements over what is available in canvas (standalone and hosted). I like not having modal boxes when adding variables or when getting variables, the dots to redirect connections is nice too!

    Hi Pierre. I meant the colors of the nodes/minimap which are a bit strident if you compare them to other DCC's. Just changing those a bit I think the look and feel would improve a lot!. Also, the background texture pattern could confuse users (a constant color works better for these situations)

    @craouette

    That's an improvement. Now I would make the colors much less saturated and change the orange text since it is difficult to read.

    I did a small mockup on how I would change it (personal opinion, of course :) )
