Debian packages for miRack are available

May 21, 2018

I've created a Debian repo with miRack packages (the main application and open-source plugins), see here for instructions and notes. The packages are for armhf architecture for now and are being tested on Tinker Board with TinkerOS, but should work on other debian-based systems (including Raspberry Pi 3 with Raspbian).

This should make installing and updating miRack much easier, and most important, will ensure that all plugins are updated as well when Rack (the main application) changes break compatibility. I don't have much experience with creating Debian packages and repositories, so let me know if there are any issues.

Also, I started working on improved touch support after noticing a related issue created in VCVRack repo, see here for details. Currently implemented are larger hitboxes for small controls and module locking to prevent accidental module movement when missing a control.

miRack - an optimised fork of VCVRack primarily targeting Raspberry Pi, ASUS Tinker Board and similar hardware (but can be used on desktop too).
