Here's my new minimalist creative coding playground!

What animations can YOU make using JavaScript and 64 sliders? 🎚️✨

Click the blue arrow to get detailed instructions. Everything you type is saved in the URL, make sure to share your creations in the comments!

In Chrome, there's also a "record" button that saves your animation as an MP4! 🎥

I originally wrote this tool for the music video "Tides", which won first place in @revision_party@twitter.com's Wild competition this year! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUTPlQzfz1k

The interactive version takes huge inspiration from @aemkei@twitter.com's "tixy", which has around 0.5 dimensions more, and uses a 16x16 dot grid! https://tixy.land

Another inspiration was "Checkboxland", which @BryanEBraun@twitter.com made at the @recursecenter@twitter.com in 2020! https://www.bryanbraun.com/checkboxland/

I'm especially amazed by this animation that @daniel_bohrer made!

Such a simple expression: (i^(t*20)%64)/63
But so much recursive complexity!

"But will it run Doom?" Yes. Yes, it does! 😆

I remade the first level using JavaScript and 64 sliders! https://blinry.org/sliderland/doom/
