WHAT IS MINT?

MINT is a framework for adding multi-touch support to your applications.

Mint takes care of multitouch inputs and provides you gestures so that you don`t have to deal with their logic in your application. Mint comes with a set of standard gestures, for special gestures you can make your own scripts using Python. Gesture Scripts can be used in all supported platforms and are interchangeable.

MINT IS BASED ON

MINT is implemented using the C++ programming language and relies heavily on the Boost C++ Libraries for maximum speed and portability. Applications using MINT can therefore be implemented using C++, for example using frameworks like openFrameworks (http://www.openframeworks.cc/) or Cinder (http://libcinder.org/). Further there are plugins for VVVV.
