Got tired of gnome the other day (old work requirement, at least it wasn't windows), and started digging around the net for something minimalist. My old friend, enlightenment, got some cool eye candy. :-) So I gave it a spin. And now I'm back on the wagon.
Anyway, I really like the effects ecomorph adds, but I hit a small snag. I got side tracked onto animated wallpapers and how they work. I modded the circuit.edj one (just moved stuff to the left) so my gkrellm didn't interfere with the display. Neat. I saw that edje can incorporate lua, which gives me the ability to open sockets and do interrupt driven things.
And there's the problem. I'd love to receive data from the real world (weather, ntp stats, gps position, latency stats, accelerometer, etc), and render them with opengl to the wallpaper. I'm thinking a field of grass that bends according to the direction and speed of the wind, or a statue in the sun where the lighting changes according to the orientation of the laptop.
So, is there any way to do opengl rendering with edge? If so, can someone point me in the right direction? My internet searches haven't uncovered much...
