I’m excited to share some work I’ve been doing on bringing next level graphics to Cabbage. I’ve been working on adding a webview widget that will display a webpage, which is being served directly from Cabbage1. This means we can use websocket opcodes2 to send data over and back between the webview and Csound. Here it is in action:
Not only does this provide us with a way of doing super efficient real-time graphics, it also means users can develop their entire UI with html5/JS. You will still need to add Cabbage sliders for plugin parameters, but if you place the webview over them they won’t be seen. And you can then provide the required hooks to update the parameters in your Csound code. I’m still working on some things, but the initial experiments seem vey encouraging.
 this build of Cabbage embeds a web server. You can set the port number when you create the
 These opcodes were written by Ed Costello. They are not part of the canonical Csound, and are not the simplest to build, so I plan to bundle them into Cabbage directly.
