    Also, if you click on demo details, most of them provide a readable version of the source code. I made 7 last year ;) http://frankforce.com/?p=5959

    Thanks for the kind words! I've been programming for about 20 years but this tiny code thing is something I've just gotten into recently. My goal is to someday write a book about it.

    I love demoscene stuff. The tiny code genera has kind of developed out of the demo scene but focused on source code rather then compiled code.

    You might also like this site.. https://js1k.com/ It's a contest that's been running for 10 years where people submitted 1k javascript programs, so much amazing stuff to see and learn.

    Hi everyone. I am back again with my 6th one of these. This one is a cool typographic effect!

    Here's the code...

    with(x)save(beginPath(font="85em'")),moveTo(j=1e3,540),clip(arc(j,540,2e3,a=t*6.3+9,a+.1)),restore(t>1||fillText("BROKE",29*S(a**3),j,1900))

    Oh wow, ok. Did you manage to beat antichamber? I didn't the first time but I started it again recently and played through. It is hard to find games that scratch the same itch as the witness.

    Great write up! I loved the game and beat the final challenge. It was one of the toughest game's I've played but also most worthwhile. There are not many games that celebrate Zen Buddhism so that was a great bonus. I didn't do many of the environmental puzzles because I figured out that they were optional, but if I'd like to do another play through in VR someday.

    If you want to try something a little similar but great in it's own way, check out a game called AntiChamber.

    Also, it sounds like you have some motion sickness, so I'd recommend a 2d puzzle game like Babba is You It's a top down game and the puzzles are awesome.

    Hello all. This is my 5th weekly post talking about one if my tiny javascript programs. I feel like I am getting better at writing these every time.

    This one is all about how to make a cool 3d strange attractor animation using just a tiny bit of javascript. I hope you enjoy!

    Javascript code...

    c.width|=X=Y=Z=1
    for(i=4010;i--;i<2e3&&x.lineTo(960+(X*C(t)-Y*S(t))*45,1160-Z*23))Z+=(X*Y-Z)/39,X+=(Y-X)/13,Y+=X*(28-Z)/99

    Thanks, I have learned so much about javascript from doing these. Though it's not proper style I think it's a really fun way to learn.

    It is a term used by the website dwitter where people post 140 character javascript demos: https://www.dwitter.net/ I think it is derived from demo + tweet, a demo that fits in a tweet.

    I really like wordpress! I've been using it for 10 years and only made a few minor changes to the theme using the built in "Additonal CSS" feature.

    I also added a sidebar for my recent tweets, and a sidebar showing recent commits to my game engine project.

    Thanks, you have some good ones in there! This was one of the more straightforward dweets, I'm dreading some of the more challenging ones I have planned down the line. Hopefully I can work up to that level of technical writing by the time I get there.

    Have you seen my little dwitter browser, dweet view? You can browse all your dweets and export them. There are a few other enhancements I've added. In your case it's not as useful because you only have a few dweets, but it's fun browsing through someones complete history in seconds. Here's a link to your dweets...

    Thank you! This was one of the more straightforward dweets I've done, working up to explaining some of the more crazy stuff.

    So, about the text of u, it is even simpler then that. In javascript any time you try to do a string operation on something that is not a string, it will be automatically converted to a string. So it's not just fillText, but any function or operator that will do this.
