The built-in Python libraries in TouchDesigner present a wide array of tools and mechanisms for creators to extend their workflow. What if you want to control devices like Philips Hue lights, create SVGs, or post to Instagram? External Python libraries can increase the reach of your work and expression, but it takes a bit of effort to seamlessly integrate them into your network.
In this session participants will first look at the process of adding an external Python library into the traditional Pythonic workflow. This initial exploration will be followed with a description of tools and best practices for simplifying that workflow, allowing participants to create transportable TOX files that ensure that Python dependencies travel seamlessly from project to project.
