Anyone written Screen Savers in XoJo?

Is it reasonable to write a Screensaver in XoJo? If so, any code examples?

I wrote an article back in 2017 that is a screen saver based on the movie ‘matrix’

What platform?

On Windows, screensavers are just EXEs, so it’s fairly easy.

On macOS, it’s basically impossible to do it in pure Xojo, since screensavers have to be written as code bundles in Objective-C (old) or Swift (new).

Eugene,

Based on Mike D’s response below, Im assuming your target was Windows?

Yes, the article was mainly for Windows.
