I finally started playing around with Processing, which has been a lot of fun. Now that I know some Java, sketching out visual things this way is really quick. Like here:
In this example, I’m using Processing.js, which translates the Java/Processing code into an HTML5 canvas element. Some of the more processor-intensive sketches I’ve worked on choke a little when running via Processing.js as opposed to being inside a Java applet, but this is still pretty impressive to me.
