The Hype Framework, developed by James Cruz and Joshua Davis, is a powerful and feature–rich addition to the Processing language.

HYPE is an external library of pre-defined classes that allows for the rapid development of Processing sketches with minimal boilerplate code.

I had found I outgrew the Processing PDE quite quickly (with its lack of line numbers and bracket completition, etc) and had started developing Processing sketches in TextMate thanks to a Processing bundle maintained by Trevor Sayre.

Unfortunately, with a majority of generative artists embracing the excellent cross–platform editor Sublime Text, there was little in the way of support for HYPE in TextMate. I liked the idea of developing an open–source bundle that would work specifically with my editor of choice, as well as broadening the options available to those interestinged in developing HYPE–powered sketches natively on a Mac.

The resulting bundle was also folded into the curriculum for a creative coding paper, and stress tested by 30 Diploma students at Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology.
