Export a ZIP file

Select the "DOWNLOAD" option in the export dialog:

Button

If you just want to download your patch and put it on any webserver that you can upload files to, this
is your best option.

The resulting zip-file will include an example index.html to make integration easier, putting all of this
on a webserver should give you a running patch in no time.

Export Options

You can choose how the contents of your export should look, the defaults should be fine for almost everything.

Include assets

If your patch uses uploaded files (textures, audio, data, ...) choose one of the following options to have
these files included in the export.

Use "All" if you are generating filenames on the fly (iterators, arrays, ...) to make sure all files are available in the Export

  • Automatic: Tries to guess which files are used in the patch and includes only used assets.
  • All: Includes all the assets uploaded to the patch or referenced in there, this is the safe option.
  • None: Does not include any assets in the export, smaller download but some things might not work in the export

Package

  • Single Javascript File: packages and minifies everything into one single javascript file to include
  • Multiple Files: will keep the patch configuration, your code, and core code in seperate files

Skip Backups

  • When deselecting this option, the export will include JSON-files for all the versions of your patch that can be re-imported into cables later.

Export without subdirectories

  • Should you need the directory structure of your patch to be "flat" (no js/ or assets/ subdirectory) you can select this option.
    • This will ususally not be needed, some platforms do not allow for accessing subdirectories tough, and some setups of frameworks like react/vue also behave weirdly with subdirectories.
