I just had a look at Processing, which is an environment, based on Java, that lets you create graphics output easily. I’m not remotely doing the thing justice here, better look at the project page for that, and be sure to view the samples! The idea is great: an editor can be used to create a source code file, which is usually very simple and can be run on the fly, for example rendering some kind of graphics output in a window. When you think you have finished what you were working on, just hit Export and the system will create a Java applet for you, ready for redistribution with a jar file and an HTML page, that does exactly what you programmed in the integrated environment. Nice!

Sorry, this blog does not support comments.

I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.

Please use the links in the page footer to get in touch with me. I'm available for conversations on Keybase, Matrix, Mastodon or Twitter, as well as via email.
