ofxKuTextGui – openFrameworks addon for creating textual GUI controlled by keyboard

We published our addon ofxKuTextGui at GitHub.

It creates textual GUI, controlled by keyboard, in a manner as a projector’s menu.

GUI supports integer, float and string values (currently string values are read-only).

Values are edited by using slow and fast adjustments.

All values are stored in a text file.

Addon supports several pages and tabs inside one page, so we can maintain many values with it.

Though the addon is very simple to use , it’s extremely powerful when we need to tune many parameters of the installation. All editing is made only by keyboard.

In our practice of creating works for events and exhibitions, keyboard is preferrable than a mouse.

We successfully used it in our newest interactive installations.
