Hi all,

I just wanted to start a thread to discuss two things:

1. When loading a Vanilla patch in Purr Data, what is the optimal UX
so that the user gets something as close as possible to Vanilla
behavior/display with the least amount of work/knowledge?

2. When writing a patch in Purr Data that targets Vanilla, what's the
best UX to get the user to write Vanilla-compatible patch?

Albert has a current merge request wrt #1 here:


Just writing out these points, I'm not wondering if #2 could be solved
with some kind of menu button that analyzes the current patch's binbuf
and prints out a series of "compatibility errors" so that the user can
click the link and visit the relevant object.
