WebRTC Made Simple

WebRTC is a set of JavaScript APIs that enable peer-to-peer, realtime communication between web browsers. It offers some pretty amazing capabilities, but getting through even a basic introduction to it can be daunting. The variety of new APIs and protocols is a lot to digest. This post is a simple guide to getting up-and-running with

Interactivity in HTML5 Canvas Visualizations

In the last canvas visualization post I discussed the canvas API’s transform functionality and how it greatly simplifies drawing complex visualizations.  In this post, I’ll talk a little about making canvas visualizations interactive and about problems you might encounter when mixing transforms and interactivity in a canvas application. Examples: (an HTML5 compatible browser is required

Taming 2D Transforms in HTML5 Canvas

This is the second post in a series on creating custom interactive visualizations in canvas.  The first post is here.

We typically use the transform API when we want to rotate or scale some element of the

I recently unearthed an old Java applet that I had written many years ago and decided to see what it would look like as a single page canvas application (an HTML5 compatible browser is required to view this page). The applet was inspired by the way blackbirds roost on power lines in San Francisco (and

A few experiments with HTML 5 applications

I’ve had a long-standing interest in taking client-side programming beyond display logic and input validation. The new HTML 5 technologies are making full-scale application development in the browser increasingly practical. Unfortunately, the needs of Carbon Five’s clients generally exceed the capabilities of purely client-side solutions, so I don’t get to spend as much time developing
