Fugio Friday – 28th October 2016

Happy Fugio Friday!

This week I’ve been hanging around the Wellcome Genome Campus near Cambridge, where my partner Anna has been doing a week residency with the scientists here. I’ve been exploring the nearby nature reserve, watching the squirrels and geese, and catching up with emails and threads of projects.

I’ve been looking at the way that Fugio is installed on OS X (now macOS), and I’m not entirely satisfied with the process that one has to go through, especially for the initial installation.  I’m experimenting with Homebrew casks, that facilitate installing applications such as Fugio through the same simple command line interface that Homebrew uses to install the libraries that we already use.

Packaging Fugio as a cask would mean installation would comprise of installing Homebrew, then typing “brew cask install fugio” into a Terminal to install the application and all its dependencies.  Much cleaner!  What do you think?

If I do go down this route, it will make releasing some new plugins somewhat easier…

On November 15th I’ll be giving a LASER talk (Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendevous) at Westminster University in Harrow about my art practice and Fugio.  There’s no link for it yet but I’ll post it up when there is, if you fancy coming along and saying hello!

Have a good week, and as ever, let me know any questions and suggestions you may have.
