I wrote a program for pressing keys and controlling the mouse using a tobii eyetracker. I have a disability and use it for gaming. I think this software could help many people and i would like to make it open source. How can i do it and what is about the necessary dll files as they are a part of the tobii SDK? Do i add them to the source code archive?22/07/2019 at 13:02 #11803Grant [Tobii]Keymaster
Hi @eyetrackjack, and thanks for your query and enthusiasm for developing the project!
Please be aware however, that the Tobii SDK (could you kindly clarify exactly which API you are using please?) is proprietary software and as such could not be included explicity in an open source archive. You can of course upload your project to a repository such as github and include the appropriate DLL’s in this manner.
If you have already done so, it would be great if you could share the project URL and we can investigate together to see the best options going forward. Best Wishes.08/08/2019 at 23:40 #11855Tobias KozlowskiParticipant
Thank you. I will share the url when i upload. I added Tobii.Interaction to my project. What i meant was to upload the dlls on github or even together with the compiled program. Tobias.12/08/2019 at 15:16 #11868Grant [Tobii]Keymaster
Hi @eyetrackjack, yes you can include the binary DLL’s directly in your GitHub project.
