Some HTML5 gewgaws for y'all

Sunday, August 04, 2013

In a previous article, I mentioned that I consider, not just programming languages, but also HTML5, an artistic medium.

If short, fluffy, entertaining pieces of music are called bagatelles, then I propose that short fluffy works in the medium of HTML5 be called gewgaws. Or at least, that's what I call them.

And so, here are a few HTML5 gewgaws for your (possible) entertainment. Located in the Digital Art Exhibit of our Gallery. In fact there are six new ones in total. And when I say HTML5, I mainly mean the <canvas> stuff, of course.

They're not esolangs, but if you like esolangs, or if you liked Cyclobots, you might like some of the more mathematically-oriented ones.
