I've been using Open Stage Control since version 1.9 but I never noticed – or perhaps I was simply in denial – that Safari is not listed as a compatible client in the Requirements section of the documentation. I generally develop using Chrome (on macOS & iPadOS) but in performance I use Safari on my iPad Mini because this one weird trick gives me additional screen real estate.
I have always noticed that Safari doesn't recognize widget default values, e.g., sliders that should load up with a default of 0.5 instantiate with a value of 0.0. That's become problematic as my interface capability has evolved. And in my hour-long performance last night, a few knobs and sliders simply seized up, stopped responding to touch, and because one of them drives my main means of expression, that was a big problem I hope never to repeat. (May or not be related to a similar issue raised earlier.)
Long intro but two questions:
- is Safari compatibility technically not possible for some reason or is it just that no one's volunteered to work on that and @jean-emmanuel has other priorities?
- has a best practice for bringing a widget back to life during a session been determined?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
