Fun with Javascript

As I'm writing on our website for the software, I'm developing more and more pleasure doing javascript stuff. It's so "easy" compared to virtually all other coding languages I have some command over, but it still feels like a full programming language, too.

Our company itself doesn't really have a website, yet, so I wrote a little stand-in yesterday, goofing around with javascript:
TiesOli

It's so fun to do this stuff, really. I'm only at the beginning of really exploring all the web stuff, so...there's most certainly another adventure ahead. I really expect it to be full of joy! :hyper:

Maybe I will eventually do a little mini-Verve online?! :D

Re: Fun with Javascript

Very nice! :ob TiesOli - acronyme for Taronities and Oli, Am I right? :-)

>>Maybe I will eventually do a little mini-Verve online?!
Is it not better to focus on the current Verve? ;) But I understand you and your enthusiasm. Nowadays web technology offers very nice results as the native apps but still, it is not as same powerful as a direct approach.
BTW Do you know https://www.shadertoy.com ?

Re: Fun with Javascript

Oh yes, I know shadertoy! Only stumbled across it a few months ago and did a few experiments with it. Good fun!

Oh, no, I won't let this distract me, except that it is a good way of experimenting with GL for mobile! Depending on how much power I may get from WebGL, it may be the ideal approach to making a cross-platform thing, who knows. I can somehow imagine. :shrug:

THANKS, Lemi, of course, I'm happy you like it, too! :hyper: ...it's so fun for me and I needed that!
Yes, yes, yes, TiesOli is a combination out of my nickname "Ties" and my wife Olivera, that's correct! :D
I wanted her name to come first, but that just looked funny...:hihi:

Re: Fun with Javascript

Hm, I'm still having some trouble getting the center logo to work in Chrome for some reason. Might be something stupid... but if you have some idea, I'm all ears! :shrug:

Re: Fun with Javascript

:-) For my nickname, I chose opposite combination Lenka and Michal = Lemi :) Reverse order Mile didn´t sound good for my ears. :)

Back to your topic. You are very right, the web Verve app can solve the cross-platform task elegantly (not sure if 100% like Nvidia vs AMD). And if you can use your current Verve shaders, the online mini Verve can be done faster. But I am afraid, still much much work.
I have seen some desktop app that was fully based on a standalone web browser engine - maybe this could be a way too.
Still, I have a weakness for a desktop app :)

It looks in center on my computer. Can you describe more?

Re: Fun with Javascript

It centers fine, but it doesn't animate?! :(
...and :lol: to Mile, though Milenium is also kinda cool! 8-)

Re: Fun with Javascript

UH, looks like I've figured it out, but it's a weird one: Chrome doesn't like transform: scale(100%); instead it needs to be floats like scale(1.0);
Now it all seems to work ok... :rock:

Re: Fun with Javascript

I'm still goofing around with the website... is it still running ok on your machines, or does it get too choppy? :?

It's running fine on my end taron. Now I know what Tiesoli and Lemi mean :hihi: I have to say that is cute :beer: :hug: I have my fingers crossed for you on this. No one needs to be a millionaire to enjoy life but a little cash in the pocket doesn't hurt either :D

Re: Fun with Javascript

You know, this is one of the things I would still like to experience...haven't been a millionaire, yet. :hihi: 8-)
But, yeah, I'm having so much fun right now, it's way too exciting!
I keep updating the site, of course. Right now I added a mode-switch. If you click in the center of the logo to freeze the background, the mode switches the next time you engage the swirls again. Currently it toggles between two modes: Let me call them "horizon ripples" and "lake ripples", hehehe. Even I get lost in playing around with them.
Once you've frozen the background, you can move the mouse to the side of the page to fade the logo a bit.

Thanks for the feedback, Tartan! :hug:
