Command line options and syntax should be the same as in current version.
No external libraries except Xtend (and Notes.jar, of course, can’t live without it).
Automatically find and use classes in Notes.jar. No installation of any kind before using CLENotes (currently users have to extract classes in Notes.jar to CLENotes directory).
Development itself should be fun and maintaining the code afterwards should be easy, and still fun (using Xtend helps with this, I think).
One consequence worth noting relates to the second bullet: no external libraries. That means I have to develop my own command line parser, logger, config file reader and other stuff that makes up the application. But that’s okay, since I’m also learning Xtend at the same time, I can live with that.
Current status of development is that I created a new Eclipse project for CLENotes v5 and started to develop command line parser with Xtend. I have no schedule and I develop CLENotes as much as time permits.
I describe also how to easily create videos using Java and Monte Media Library. Video is basically just for the fun of it, like comparing Coca-Cola’s and PepsiCo’s Mission, Vision and Value statements below.
The next version of One Word Visualization visualizes a given text with a single line. I call it One Line Visualization and let’s abbreviate it as “OLViz”.
Idea of OLViz is to use a single colored line in 3D space to represent text. The way its done is to calculate MD5 hash from text and then use that hash as seed for Processing‘s random generator. Line vector coordinates, color and rotations are randomized and since each seed is unique then all texts have unique one line visualization.

The reason why bug happened was because of one little comma… The excerpt below shows the bug in the list that is used to generate bar chart with Google Charts.
The code below has no comma and it works.
The bug fix in the code generation is below.
