Github and Omnis call to arms (last updated 14 February 2018)

In order to contribute to the Omnis call to arms (see, we have uploaded several EurOmnis presentation libraries and Brainy Data example libraries to Github. There are still a few more to be uploaded. Moving forward, we intend to use Github as our main VCS for both EurOmnis and Brainy Data libraries and welcome any contributions, however small, to these ongoing projects. We are ashamed to say, that all of our Brainy Data libraries still use Omnis DML, but this is something we will rectify as we move forward. Nevertheless, all libraries include many examples of Omnis Studio programming techniques that not only demonstrate the use of our products, but also demonstrate the versatility of Omnis. All libraries are published under the MIT license, so feel free to enjoy.

The decision to use Github as our main VCS has the consequence that our latest Libraries will require Studio 8.1 from hereon. We will keep historical versions of the current example libraries which will work with Studio 4.3 or later and which will be available on request, but we will no longer maintain these. Of course, if you subscribe to our technical support program and you require examples of use not covered in the Studio 8.1 libraries, we will provide you with sample code that will work with your version of Omnis Studio.

Please understand that the libraries are provided without warranty and that, unless you own a technical support subscription or are working on improvements via mutual agreement, we are unable to provide technical support in relation to these libraries.

All non-technical communications related to libraries on Github should be send to click here.

All our repositories can be found at

Yours faithfully,
Michael Monschau (Director)
