Guiliani Streaming Editor (GSE)
Revision as of 14:21, 9 June 2022 by Sascha
Guiliani Streaming Editor or GSE for short is an easy-to-use WYSIWYG GUI editor tool for artists, interaction designers, and developers. It allows you to design intuitive user interfaces including prototyping and deployment on embedded targets.
With GSE you can design your GUI without any programming skills. It features all Guiliani widgets and can import all kinds of resources (e.g. images, fonts, etc.). You can easily manage multiple languages including the import and export of translations, e.g. to deliver them to a translator. GSE includes also an easy way to start your GUI on the host systems for testing or include scripts to export it to your target.
The editor itself is built using Guiliani and supports all features that are integrated into Guiliani. So it can be used on different operating systems like Windows, Linux, and macOS.
The GSE has an animation editor, this makes it a breeze to create, edit and embed animated content in the GUI. For a quick result, just start a recording, capture animations as easy as a video on your smartphone. After starting the recording, simply move the object in real time in the GSE.
Importing from other sources
The GSE also allows to import projects from other programs. Currently Photoshop and TouchGFX are supported.
Import from Photoshop
Importing from Photoshop allows you to easily import or update the graphics created by your designer in Photoshop into a GSE project. If you follow GSE's naming convention for Photoshop, complete GUIs including the individual GUI components (e.g. buttons, sliders, ...) can be created automatically during import.
Import of TouchGFX projects
The import of TouchGFX projects is currently supported up to version 4.19. By importing your existing TouchGFX-project into the GSE enables you to use it on many other platforms apart from ST.
Automatic conversion to the optimal graphics format for your hardware.
Sometimes graphics are not in the optimal or even usable format for their target hardware. The GSE itself works with most common graphic formats, so the graphic designer does not have to worry about which specific format they need the files in. Before the GSE starts to export the streaming data for you, you can configure in which format it should provide the graphics files for the target hardware and thus achieve an optimal result in terms of performance and display.
