    It depends. Some NodeBox 1 libraries require features that are only available on Mac OS X, and so are not available in NodeBox for OpenGL (which is cross-platform). A lot of these libraries haven't been updated in a long time and might require some careful prodding to make them work on newer versions of Python and NodeBox.

    Here is an overview of all libraries available on and which ones should be compatible:


    (Note that a lot of the functionality of these is now covered by Tom's excellent Pattern library: WordNet: OK
    Keywords: OK
    Database: OK
    Graph: Some parts – the drawing part might not work
    Linguistics: OK
    Web: OK
    Perception: OK


    PhotoBot: should work if you have the Python Imaging Library installed
    Core Image: specific to OS X
    iSight: specific to OS X
    Quicktime: specific to OS X


    Bezier: obsolete – features are built in to NodeBox / NodeBox OpenGL
    Cornu: should work
    SVG: should work
    Supershape: should work
    Bezier Editor: probably not


    Boids: OK
    Ants: OK
    L-system: OK
    Noise: OK


    Colors: OK, except for some parts that rely on Core Image
    Grid: no idea


    Pixie: no idea
    Fatpath: probably not


    WiiNode: requires a OS X application to work
    TUIO: should work
    OSC: OK
