Doodle origami diagraming language

Postby islandmassive » July 27th, 2006, 9:15 pm

Hi was searching on google and came across this site http://doodle.sourceforge.net/about.html which is basically a whole scripting language to design origami diagrams i was just wondering people's ideas on it and whether they would use it or have used it for diagranms instead of something like illustrator or freehand.

This would be good for those who know some programming language. It also seems like programming wierd folds would be a pain... For those who can program easily, all the more power to you!

I struggled with Doodle for a while. I was only able to come up with the simplest of the diagrams. The final PDF cut the top of the first page but from then on it was ok.

I guess it takes some mathematical and programming skills to master it

It's an interesting idea, but it doesn't appear to have been updated in about five years.

The page even has a developer's forum. I asked a question and the only answr was from that French guy that created the program.

Way to complicated for my feeble little brain! If it wasn't so complicated, more people might use it but first you have to know all the terminology and that would be a pita to learn. :|

Steep learning curve. Something I'd really love to master because it seems that if you know how to operate it, it saves you a lot of time. But I'd rather spend my time folding.

I perfectly understand authors that don't do diagrams.
