[QUOTE=ArcadEd] Haha, good timing. I was just looking at that exact line in eclipse and I was like, I don't see a cordavaplugin file anywhere. I know cordova is phonegap.

Wink, is there any possible way you uploaded a zip that was accelerated some other way besides with pender?

Anyway, so that post was 2 months ago. If it's broken, not sure what we can do but wait?[/QUOTE]

Well I will be the first to admit that I'm more of a hack than a programmer, and I usually figure things out by pure luck, and accident but unless I accidentally created my own accelerated plugin some how then the answer is no. The only accelerated things Iv touched lately have been CocoonJS, and Pender. lol

What about the dev branch?

All the files seem to be older as well, still no CordovaPlugin and the create.py file is also pointing the wrong location.

I wonder if he just stopped work on the project? Seems to weird to post that he broke it, and that was the last post LOL

Hopefully you can figure out how you got it working :). ArcadEd2013-02-11 21:22:49

What about the master branch zip file download?

I downloaded that first, and then I decided to do a proper git clone. I like to work on my desktop and its a mess with multiple projects I'm working on maybe I built it from the zip accidentally instead of the clone.

Could you check that since you know what your looking for?

It's still missing the CordvaPlugin and I get the same results when I try to do the ./pendertools.

Thanks anyway ArcadEd. Sorry I wasted your day on this, and got everyone's hopes up.

I'm just stumped on this one

Hey folks!

My name is Lorin Beer, and I am the creator and primary developer of the Pender project. I was recently contacted by one Mr. WINK on the forums here concerning the dismal shape of the current GIT repo.

Please stay tuned, I am currently out on sick leave, but have been hacking on Pender.

A little about Pender:
Pender is a code name for a cross platform rendering library offering a hardware accelerated javascript graphics API on mobile platforms. Currently targeted platforms are iOS, Android, WP7/8 and BB. Each platform has a proof of concept demonstrating the feasibility of the method used to provide the OpenGL ES hooks to javascript.

Pender Android uses Rhino, a Java JS engine by Mozilla for fast js processing. The demo code in the downloads section of github shows a simple render stress test, with 40+ individual sprites rendering at 35+ FPS on a Galaxy Nexus device.

However, working with the Uxebu boys and bonsai.js, we noticed an unacceptable slowdown when processing js calls to a <scarequote> realistic </scarequote> js codebase. The reason for this is simple: Rhino produces jvm bytecode for optimization, but that fails when running on a dalvyk java environment.

So, the latest move is to replace Rhino with V8. Please expect an update to the git repo in the next few days. I'll update it with the dev code on my machine, as well as (working) build instructions.

Thanks for the interest and stay tuned!
