I’m not entirely sure how this came about, but I’m actually using telegraf input plugins for the first time. I don’t actually know if this is the “plugin” that is so popular, but I’m just using it right now to make a simple sound.
We tried the plugin several times, so I think it does work. I personally do not like the way it’s written, so I’ve decided to fix it.
I think that, although telegraf has a lot of potential, I do think it’s very difficult to do what it does, and I dont know that it is worth the hassle (or time) of porting it to your own site. Im using the plugin to make a simple sound and Ive found that I like it much better than the built-in plugin.
The good news is that telegraf is working great. The bad news is that I have to install the plugin and then manually plug it into some other site.
Telegraf is a free, open-source sound-generator. That may be useful in a few sites, but is not really necessary in most. I see no reason why anyone should use it for anything serious, and it can be quite frustrating to spend days tinkering with it, tweaking it, and making it work. I guess you could call it a “proprietary” plugin, but I don’t see that as a bad thing.
There is always a free one, but telegraf is a bit of a pain to use. It’s an open-source implementation of the OSS sound-generator software. What that means is that the developer makes it work by using the source code and letting others use it to do what they want, provided that it works with their sound-generator. It’s pretty much like the way Firefox uses the source code to make the browser work.
I do wish telegraf was more open, and I do see a lot of potential in the idea, but I don’t think it is ready for prime time. I’m not saying that telegraf is useless, just that it’s not ready for prime time.
I’m not sure I understand what you mean by telegraf being “just like Firefox” in the first place. If I am correct, Firefox is a lot more open about letting others use the source code to use its features, and in my experience, such an attitude is often rewarded.
Firefox is not a “tool” per se, so that is not how telegraf is meant to be used. That is, it does not have a single feature, but rather a set of features. Instead of being a “tool” for a specific purpose, telegraf is meant to be a way to make your web browser a lot more open and friendly.
This is a misconception, and it is one that is often perpetuated by people who want to use Firefox with the idea that “Firefox is a tool, and Firefox is not a tool.” While I don’t believe that the two are mutually exclusive, it’s worth noting that Firefox does have a lot of features, and telegraf has a lot of features. Although the two are not mutually exclusive, their use is distinct.
