1K Procedural Rose
Román Cortés does it again, this time with a procedural rose rendering in just 1018 bytes. Another of my favorite things about JS1k is all the learning and sharing that goes on. Román has written a fantastic blog post about how he made the rose, including all the rendering techniques and more. Definitely a must read!
Paul Milham made a neat demo that renders a fire with particles on a canvas, and if you mash the keyboard, you can pee on the fire to put it out. Be careful where you aim though, as how much you mash controls how fast it comes out. :)
Tunnel of Love
Alexander Prinzhorn brings us a nice demo showing a tunnel of love in just 535 bytes. That’s all there is to it!
Modern Art Generator
Clocking in at just 735 bytes, this is a procedural modern art generator for the canvas element. Very neat!
Manel Villar made a neat demo that reveals a message as you move your mouse over it in 1017 bytes. Can you read it?
The Love Helix
Chris Heilmann submitted the love helix in just 459 bytes. I could watch this all day!
It is amazing to see what can be done in such a small amount of code. I just love the creativity everyone brings to their demos! We’ve seen some great ones so far, and I can’t wait to see more submissions as they come in. Don’t forget to check out the whole list of demos on the JS1k website, and to submit your own if you feel so called. Enjoy!
