Introducing: Show & TellSeptember 20, 2022
We know that you’re patching on crazy things all day. Only hardly anyone gets to see those. What if it was just the press-of-a-shortcut away to share a screenshot of your current renderings with the world? Try Show & Tell:
Available in latest vvvv gamma previews, it can be invoked via
3 and allows you to quickly share a screenshot plus a short text. When open, Show & Tell intercepts any screenshot you make. Use either:
S: The default windows shortcut to take a screenshot
2: Works on Skia and Stride windows
Screenshots augmented with a description can then be posted to a shiny common madewithvvvv account that will collect all the renderings anyone shares:
For details on how to add custom accounts, see the documentation.
What the Pixelfed and Mastodon!?
Pixelfed and Mastodon are part of the larger Fediverse, a federation of decentralized social networks. In contrast to the more well-known legacy walled-gardens, those work more like e-mail: Anyone can run their own instance of a Pixelfed or Mastodon server and still communicate with anyone else, because the fediverse shares a common communications protocol: ActivityPub. No ads, no tracking, no blockchain, no crypto. Just a simple way to share images and text over the internet.
Like the idea? Using the VL.IO.Mastonet NuGet you can easily build your own programs that read/write from/to Mastodon or Pixelfed accounts.
So please go ahead and share your sketches, failures and even shiny polished projects and let us create a wonderful gallery of vvvvorks together.
