Read text from a file : I wrote a plugin

Hello,
I needed to be able to read a text file in Isadora so I wrote a plugin using the Isadora SDK. Thought it would be nice to share it ;)
You will precisely know how to use it by reading the actor's help tooltips, but here is a summary:
INPUTS:
- file path (file to read)
- linebreak mode used to write the file (Windows CR+LF, Unix LF, Mac CR)
- read mode (whole text, only 1 character, only 1 line, only 1 paragraph)
- start (When read mode is set to 'whole text' or 'char', this parameter will tell the actor from which character to begin reading. When read mode is set to 'line' or paragraph', you will be able to choose which line/paragraph number you will read.)
- auto-read on input change (except linebreak mode and input triggers)
- reset output trigger (clean the output text and 'file available' output on/off switch)
- manual read trigger
OUTPUTS:
- output text
- on/off parameter to tell the user if the given input file is readable
- 'file has been read' trigger
ABOUT LINEBREAKS:
Depending on which OS is used to create the text file, new lines have a different format. More info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_break_(computing)
Therefore, your file has to use proper formatting according to the OS under which you run Isadora (you can convert your text files using external advanced text editors).
NOTE:
This plugin has not been tested extensively, so there may still be bugs. In particular, it has only been tested under Windows, so if something doesn't work, just post it below and I'll check.
IN THE ATTACHED ZIP FILE:
- Windows DLL (just drop it into isadora_install_directory/Isadora Plugins)
- 2 Visual studio 2010 source files, in case you want to convert it to xCode or just look a it
Enjoy ;)

    Once you have downloaded the SDk you get this info in the installer, which can be saved as a PDF:

    Using the SDK

    Once the SDK is installed, open the IsadoraSDK folder. Within it you will find the "Isadora Plugin Wizard"
    application which will assist you in creating a basic plugin project that you can customize for your
    own use. To use the wizard, do the following:

    1. Double click the Isadora Plugin Wizard application and click "Continue" from the startup dialog.

    2. Enter your developer ID. This text string used to generate the bundle identifier that will uniquely
    identify your plugin to the Apple operating system, e.g., TroikaTronix's ID is "troikatronix". Do not
    use any special characters or spaces within this text. Once you've entered your ID, click "OK". (Note:
    the ID will be remembered the next time you run the wizard.)

    3. Enter the name of your new plugin. This text will be used to name the folder containing the new
    project, the XCode project itself, and the plugin name as seen by Isadora. This text may contain
    spaces, but it is generally a bad idea to include special characters. Once you've entered the plugin
    name, click "OK".

    4. The wizard will now copy and configure a new XCode project according to your specifications, and
    then automatically open it in XCode.

    Compiling

    The plugin references the IsadoraLib folder which is installed, by default, at /Developer/IsadoraSDK.
    This folder contains the "IsadoraLib.a" static library that provides useful functionality to the plugin as
    well as the include files necessary to interface the plugin with the library and with Isadora itself.

    After a successful compile, the plugin will be copied to the folder at /Library/Application Support/
    TroikaTronix/Isadora Plugins or /Library/Application Support/TroikaTronix/Isadora Controls as
    appropriate. This ensures that Isadora will "see" the plugin when you debug it. (Note, support for
    these new plugin folders was added with Isadora v1.3.0f13; previous versions do not recognize these
    folders.)

  • "Can someone also do a video about compiling an Isadora Plugin?"

    Sounds like a job for me. Will try to make time for this in the coming month.

  • Personaly, I use a quicktime text movie, you can use belle-nuit subtitle software to translate .srt to quickTime text and then QuickTime 7 pro to obtain a QT movie. You can also write the QT text yourself, using text edit.
    Played in Isadora, you can activate the text track and use text/draw actor to screen it.
    If you need to slave it to entering timecode, as MTC, you can use MTC reader. If you need to slave to another movie, you can slave it via position
    I send you a patch in Isadora (pre-release version), with subtitles in text and QT.
    A little bit easier…
    Hope that helps,

  • In that case you need to convert it to xCode and export it as an .izzyplug

    I'm afraid I have no idea how to do that... it would be great of someone made a tutorial - any takers?

  • I think Graham is right. I don't know xCode but I assume you have to
    start a new project using the Isadora Wizard. Make sure you call it
    ReadTextFromFile for simplicity.

    Once you have done this (and
    your blank .cpp file is created), you'll have to integrate my changes
    into your project (.cpp/.h files). Try copying both files into the
    source folder of your blank project, thus replacing your .cpp (back it
    up first, just in case). Compile. If it doesn't work, you'll have to
    restore your backup .cpp and integrate my code manually.

    Once
    again, I didn't try this myself. If it works, don't hesitate to post it
    in this forum, I'm sure the community would be thankful!

  • Don't hesitate to ask if you have a doubt about the code (although I don't understand it 100% myself ^^).

    And for those who wonder how to install the compiled plugin under Windows : just copy the .dll file into 'IsadoraInstallationFolder\Isadora Plugins', e.g. C:\Program Files\Isadora\Isadora Plugins. Don't forget to restart Isadora. The plugin should then show up in the list.

    Hello,

    I also tried to open it on Xcode  and tried to reproduce what djinoui wrote but as Grahm it's far out of my comfort zone!!! :-)

    So I'm getting 6 errors wich I understand about the same as if it were Chinese!

    Any Ideas?

    Thanks guys for helping

  • Oh it seems that all 6 errors are related to the _stat function, which is Windows-only. Try to remove the underscores (stat instead of _stat) in faulty lines and see if it compiles.
    stat seems to be a C function, not C++, so I don't know if this will work but it's worth a try.
    Maybe you will also have to change this line:
    size_t fileSize = -1; // file size (from stat() function)
    to
    off_t fileSize = -1; // file size (from stat() function)

  • GREAT! Thank you!!!

    It still gives an error but the plugin works anyway!
    I managed to read a file (on the old mac I tried with isadora 1.3.0f17).

    attached you can find the .izzyplug working!

  • great plugin, great work.
    i downloaded it to play with and found that (i'm on a mac) the text needed to be written with text wrangler rather than text edit for the plugin to read just the text.  i wonder if i've missed something in text edit?

  • Mmmmm... My assumption is that the default line endings are different in TextEdit and TextWrangler. Could you please post a sample of each text file, one created with TextEdit and the other one with TextWrangler ? So I could check how they are formatted.

  • Apparently TextEdit wrote the file using the RTF format, not plain text. RTF stores formatting (font, color...) information along with the text. That's why you get {\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252....etc. Just make sure you write your file in plain text with no formatting (or use another editor, which you did).
    About line-endings : ring.txt has no line endings, but once.txt has LF line-endings in it, which are usually used on Unix OSes. I've read that MacOSX is built upon a Unix system, so if you use this OS (and I suppose you do), you will have to select 'unix' linebreak mode, not 'mac'.

  • Does anybody if it's possible to work with a srt (subtitles) archive with any Isadora plugin?
    The point is that I want to project subtitles but synchronized with a timecode…

  • Essentially it is a text file, change the extension and it should work fine.

  • So, what about the time code. Do you think that can it be synchronized a video?
  • I guess so , read the time code, compare it to the incoming time code from the movie and display it if it is within the range, read the next code etc. There is a bunch of text parsing to do but I cant see a reason you cant get this going.

    http://www.fredrodrigues.net/ https://github.com/fred-dev Razor Blade 2016 W10 64, GTX 1060 16g ram rMBP Late 2013 OSX 10.10, GT750m 16g ram

  • Ok, there is one problem, I had a quick go and you have to do a fair bit of work but the last step I cannot get around is that the timecodes come in as text not numbers. everything else is solvable but getting the time right. When I read the timecode from a standard .srt file you get this

    00:02:17,575 --> 00:02:19,065

    It is a tricky bit, I think using the text chopper you can then do the addition of the times as time code, I used the timecode comparator and you have to do some strange stuff but basically, in the timecode actor seconds are actually split into 256, so if you chop and parse each number from the line that has the time in and out and then work out the total time in seconds, multiply by 256 and then compare it with the current time...... kind of annoying to do. You may be better off trying to modify the above user actor to do it.

  • @djinoui 
    Have you tested the plugin on Windows 8 or 8.1?

    I have a project that is using it that now crashes shortly after the text read.. (on all installed versions. inc, both the stable release and pre-release)
    Strangely no error report is created, just a windows prompt that its crashed and windows will try to find a solution. 
    So debugging is a little slow.

  • After installing 1.5.3f25 (latest pre-release) on the W8.1 virtual PC, everything seems to be back to normal again.
    Could you please tell me if you still get a crash with this version?

  • Yeah.. just did a quick test, and I still crash.. 
    I will try to create a simple version for testing.. to make sure (the patch I have thats using it is pretty complex)

  • OK, spoke to soon... some fiddling.. and it works again.. I think it has to do with the init settings for the plugin. I didn't really change anything and its working, so I think that I simply saved a happy value into an input when I updated my user actor.

  • OK, keep me updated if you manage to reproduce the bug.
    For what it's worth, I wouldn't be surprised if it was related to file encoding. Or even special characters in the input path.

  • pretty cool actor
    thx
  • Thanks for this plugin. It works great, even in 2017 with the latest version of Izzy! Just what I needed.
  • Glad to read this, as I didn't test it with Isadora 2! Happy VJing!
