Table of ContentsClose


1. Description

This layer adds a major mode to control TidalCycles, a programming language for live coding.

1.1. Features:

  • tidal-mode to interact with TidalCycles
  • Spacemacs friendly key bindings

2. Install

To use this configuration layer, add it to your ~/.spacemacs. You will need to add tidalcycles to the existing dotspacemacs-configuration-layers list in this file.

3. Usage

After installing TidalCycles and starting SuperDirt as described in the docs, open a file with the .tidal extension and start TidalCycles with SPC m t s.

You can evaluate a piece of code with SPC m RET or the original key binding C-RET.
