Chataigne what ?
Chataigne is a free, open-source software made with one goal in mind : create a common tool for artists, technicians and developers who wish to use technology and synchronize software for shows, interactive installations or prototyping.
It aims to be as simple as possible for basic interactions, but can be easily extended to create complex interactions.
Chataigne is under the GPL3 license, you can find the sources on github
Okay, but what does it do exactly ?
While Chataigne won't do much by itself, its purpose is to be the central hub in a project involving multiple interfaces, software, devices and sensors. You can see it as a Conductor, which will control all the software with the big picture in mind. Chataigne has been designed to fit both linear shows and realtime/interactive project needs.
Seems cool, tell me more !
You can check the tutorials to better understand what and how you can use Chataigne for your projects.
I want it, and i want it now !!
Well, what are you waiting for ? Pick your favorite flavor and enjoy !
If you're running Arch Linux, you can now just do `yay -S chataigne-stable-bin` or `paru -S chataigne-stable-bin` (Thanks Stephan !)
Raspberry Pi : You will probably need to install the libbluetooth-dev library : sudo apt install libbluetooth-dev
For those who want to test the latest features, this is the bleeding edge version, updated at each modifications. It's likely to be highly unstable !
Having a problem with the latest version ? You can try and find an an older version here !
Chataigne is made with a lot of Love. But as you all know, love takes time, and time can be hard to find ! I chose not to make this software paying so everybody can enjoy it and feel free to create without any money constraint. This means that I rely on the good faith of users to pay for this project what they think is right for their use of it, and remember than even 1$/month (so 12$ a year) is really important to me, it shows support and gets me motivated to keep improving it !
