Friture is registered in the Python Package Index


Friture is mostly written in the Python programming language.

Additionally, Friture uses the following libraries:

Where performance is critical, some computing operations are specifically written in Cython, a programming language that provides C-extensions for Python.

Most graphical operations (apart from simple widgets and general application design) are performed with OpenGL (using the PyOpenGL Python bindings).

Internally, Friture is designed around a 25-ms timer that periodically allows the various widgets to update their contents for a smooth visual result. Meanwhile, the PortAudio system invokes a callback that pushes the fresh audio data to a ringbuffer that can be accessed by the widgets.
