In my web development day job, I make heavy use of generators whenever I can get hold of them. Writing boilerplate code is the anti-pattern of my productivity, hence I long for tools to make this unnecessary form of workload go away.

Coincidentally, the same applies for max patches. TL;DR - I love Max but hate overusing my mouse, so I did something about it.

And it goes like this:

I wrote a transpiler that can generate max patches from a string you specify at the command line. Find the project here: https://github.com/julianrubisch/maxy-gen
