Robert O’Rourke has developed HasCanvas, an interesting community-based tool which allows users to create, experiment and share their own scripts based on John Resig’s processing.js.
HasCanvas is a simple tool for creating, experimenting with, and sharing processing.js scripts. It’s part browser-based IDE and part paste-bin. Once you login you choose any url as the name for your script and you’re away!
To use HasCanvas, simply log in, type the URL your require in the address bar, click the left hand side arrows to open the editor and start creating your own script.
It’s an interesting idea, and one we’re keen to follow in the months to come. The danger of creating such a site is the possibility of users joining only to create blank or broken scripts through loss of interest whilst coding, which will mean the valued scripts will get lost in the junk.
For the moment though, there are at least 12 scripts created by Sanchothefat (which we presume is Robert) ready for your viewing!
