The day has finally come. Hyle is now open source. Although the code isn't as refined as I would like it to be and it’s still missing a couple of features, I felt like developing in the open was the way to go forward. As stated in the previous post, this project can go as far as the community wants to take it.
Many people have asked about the syntax highlighting used in the Article. As mentioned in the [documentation],(http://hyle.io/docs/basic-understandings), Hyle's syntax is similar to YAML’s, therefore, you can use the YAML syntax highlighting when you use Hyle.
Answering Questions: “Can Hyle work the other way around and generate the script from an actual projet?” Not yet, but it will.
Hyle has officially launched today on aescripts + aeplugins and it has been an amazing launch. The script was really well received and seems to have piqued the interest of many After Effects users. Although many questions were raised in the comments and the emails I received. The main big question was “Can Hyle work the other way and generate the script from an actual projet?”, to which I will answer “Not yet, but it will”.
You may sometimes find yourself needing for a place to store your Hyle snippets to be able to just share a short link. To post it on Twitter maybe? Or send it to a colleague? The pastebin is a great way to do this. Just go in there, paste whatever you feel like sharing, hit save and you're good to go! You will get clean URLs such as hyle.io/paste/Ng.
Hyle aims at giving After Effects users more possibilities to interact with this great piece of software. It allows you to generate content from a simple and understandable text syntax and it's designed to be simple enough to be used by anybody but powerful enough for everybody.
