XLights/Nutcracker is Born!
- In January 2013, Matt Brown took the web based code that Sean had written and re-wrote into C++ and made Nutcracker part of xLights.
- It produced a real time Nutcracker product.
- The snowflake effect took 5 minutes to generate effects using Nutcracker 2 minutes
- In Nutcracker 3 (The xLights port), that same effect now took less than 5 seconds.
