Kairos Research Lab

We develop Kairos, an open-source library for data control and composition in vvvv

About


Kairos is a complete framework for data control and composition in vvvv.
It comes as a repository containing a collection of open-source libraries, which are available as vvvv nugets:
  • VL.AlchemX
  • VL.LayerX
  • VL.Touchy
  • VL.BindX
  • VL.Kairos.Runtime
  • VL.Kairos 
VL.Kairos is the main package that the final user is normally exposed to.
It offers a set of high-level tools with dedicated UI editors:
The other libraries of the Kairos framework cover specific domains of problematics:
from value synthesis to system parameters binding, these libraries contribute to the complex Kairos ecosystem, combining with each other in an elegant way.
They can be considered the building blocks of the VL.Kairos High-Level tools. 

The Kairos Research Lab collective maintains and develops the Kairos library in all its parts.
Everyone can find a way to contribute: financially supporting the initiative or directly contributing to the code.
We have open channels to come together, exchange ideas and feedback, and plan development.
