A new version of the pattern editor for test

Hi

Annie sent me a copy of her book https://www.etsy.com/shop/ASpinnerWeaver. I’m very happy that the pattern editor could have help her to write such a great book.

I then decided to update and simplify the seizenn editor. You can found a test version on http://www.raktres.net/seizenn/v2/editor.html, I need some feedbacks before I could replace the present version.

inkle wave pattern editor - raktres.net

Some improvements :

  • new look
  • drag and drop for colors
  • a “value” button, to view a pattern in black and white (page 8 of Annie’s book)
  • a button to load a pattern from a short code
  • and few other things

Fell free to send comments if you find bugs or if something doesn’t work the way you would like to.

Hope you will like it.

Where do I find control code to register a pattern?

Hi

I had several questions about the control code needed to register a pattern.

So, here an example with a pattern from http://aspinnerweaver.blogspot.com/

When you save your pattern, you get a pop-up window like this one

The two needed codes are “H1” and “a856”

Then, go to the register page and type in the two codes like that :

Click “load”, you should get the second step with a preview of the pattern:

 

You add here a comment and choose if you want the pattern to be public or private (one day you will be able to change those value afterward).

Be sure your pattern is visible before going further.

When OK, click “register”:

If you abort the process before this third step you will have a line in the gallery, but no preview. If everything OK, you find your pattern in the gallery.

 

If you already created a pattern but not have the control code, send me a message.

And leave a comment if you need more help or if something goes wrong.

Display your patterns in the gallery

Hi

The pattern editor is design as an offline tool. You can save it on your computer and design your bands even if you are not connected to the internet. But then, it’s a bit difficult to share your pattern.

There is a new tool for those who have an account on the blog. If you save you pattern using the button on the left menu, you get a short link and a control code. You can then register your pattern on this page http://www.raktres.net/blog/seizenn-register-a-pattern/ (you can get it on the top menu “Inkle loom pattern editor”/”Register a pattern”).

During the registration procedure, you choose if you want to keep you pattern private or share it.

You then have acces to the public gallery and to your private gallery.

 

If you created a pattern few times ago, the tool didn’t gave you the control code. If you want to register such pattern, please leave me a comment with the short codes.
