## What's this?
This is a live-coding tool, where you can write a 2D fragment/pixel shader while it is running in the background.

The tool was originally conceived and implemented after the Revision 2014 demoscene party's live coding competition where two contestants improv-code an effect in 25 minutes head-to-head. Wanna see how it looks in action? Check https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KG_2q4OEhKc

## Keys
- F2: toggle texture preview
- F5 or Ctrl-R: recompile shader
- F11 or Ctrl/Cmd-f: hide shader overlay
- Alt-F4 or Shift+Escape: exbobolate your planet

## Requirements
On Windows, both DirectX 9 and 11 are supported.

For the OpenGL version (for any platform), at least OpenGL 4.1 is required.

On recent macOS, to allow sound input to be captured (for FFT textures to be generated), you need to: Open up System Preferences, click on Security & Privacy, click on the Privacy tab then click on the Microphone menu item. Make sure Bonzomatic.app is in the list and ticked.

## Configuration
27

29
You can configure Bonzomatic by creating a `config.json` and placing it next to the binary executable you're planning to run in the working directory for the binary; Bonzomatic will helpfully print this directory out for you when you run it, and you can also pass a file (with absolute or relative path, whichever you want) to load any other file as `config.json`. This allows you to have multiple configurations for multiple situations.

The file can have the following contents: (all fields are optional)

  },
  "postExitCmd":"copy_to_dropbox.bat" // this command gets ran when you quit Bonzomatic, and the shader filename gets passed to it as first parameter. Use this to take regular backups.
}
```
### Automatic shader backup
If you want the shader to be backed up once you quit Bonzomatic, you can use the above `postExitCmd` parameter in the config, and use a batch file like this:
```
@echo off
REM ### cf. https://stackoverflow.com/a/23476347
for /f "tokens=2 delims==" %%a in ('wmic OS Get localdatetime /value') do set "dt=%%a"
set "YY=%dt:~2,2%" & set "YYYY=%dt:~0,4%" & set "MM=%dt:~4,2%" & set "DD=%dt:~6,2%"
set "HH=%dt:~8,2%" & set "Min=%dt:~10,2%" & set "Sec=%dt:~12,2%"

This will copy the shader timestamped into a specified folder.

## Building
As you can see you're gonna need [CMAKE](https://cmake.org/) for this, but don't worry, a lot of it is automated at this point.

### Windows
Use at least Visual C++ 2010. For the DX9/DX11 builds, obviously you'll be needing a DirectX SDK, though a lot of it is already in the Windows 8.1 SDK as well.

### OSX/macOS
```cmake``` should take care of everything:
```
94
95
96
mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ../
cmake --build .

The Bonzomatic.app bundle, resulting from the compilation, should be found in `./build/Bonzomatic.app`. You can place it anywhere.
We do NOT recommend putting it in /Applications. Bonzomatic is looking for config.json files and resources living at the same level of the app.

### Linux
You'll need ```xorg-dev``` and ```libglu1-mesa-dev```; after that ```cmake``` should take care of the rest:
```
apt install xorg-dev libglu1-mesa-dev cmake
cd Bonzomatic
cmake .
make
make install
```

### OpenBSD
[Xenocara](https://xenocara.org) contains all required components.  Hack away with
```
cmake .
make
```
or use the port
```
cd /usr/ports/graphics/bonzomatic
make install
```
