Here's my new minimalist creative coding playground!

➡️ sliderland.blinry.org ⬅️

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! youtube.com/watch?v=bUTPlQzfz1

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! tixy.land

Another inspiration was "Checkboxland", which @BryanEBraun@twitter.com made at the @recursecenter@twitter.com in 2020! 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!

@blinry Hah, I already wondered whether you were inspired by that 🙂

@blinry great! Really cool and creative what you can do.
Except the Google promotion - it hurts. Honestly. Please don't! contrachrome.com/

@SeeHorst Thanks for pointing that out! I'm also unhappy with the situation that the're only a good technical solution for recording MP4s in some of the browsers. :/

@blinry awesome, but now I really need to find my (booklet with collection of mathematical formulas) from back in school an remember all this formulas again :awesome: :fairydust:

@blinry awesome! thank you for this, tides was beautiful and this is super playful

@blinry I love the playground and the video - very cool!

@blinry the music Video is awesome, too. I can't stop watching. Like hypnosis. Very nice!

@tian Cool!! The same technique could be used for a real clock, I guess! :O

@EdJoPaTo @blinry You may prefer to divide by (base-1), but you need the same base in base** and %base

@tian @blinry I suspected that while playing around with that. Thanks for confirming!

Sadly the number is not that big so it looks nicer with lower bases. And using a binary base with sliders looks lame… let’s call it artistic compromise 🙃

@blinry Great! I had a similar idea. Now I don't have to do it!
