    I also think DS9 is the best trek. TNG was great for what it did to reboot the universe but DS9 does everything so much better. I hope we see some of these characters make a return in Picard.

    Thanks! I mainly use it on windows with the chrome browser, that's actually what I would recommend.

    Thank you, yes, I share similar feelings about the state of most javascript code. I am actually a bit of an expert in new field/movement that I call 'tiny code' that I have been practicing all year. We try to write code as simple and small as possible.

    If you load up the zzart website again, it should have stored it on your phone. It always keeps the last generated program in memory. You can also hit the floppy disk button to save an image. I haven't focused as much on the mobile side, but I'm amazed at how well it works on there. That's why I went with GLSL 1.0

    I haven't gotten into electron or TypeScript yet, but I am excited to dive in soon. So far I've mostly spent the past 6 months trying to master pure javascript. I'm still learning new things everyday!

    Hi everyone!

    I am working on this for #procjam and it is already turning out amazing! It uses randomly generated shader code to create images that you can evolve by clicking on them.

    To get started you will need to click the randomize button a bunch of times until you see one that looks interesting. This is completely at random at first so it takes a while to find a good seed. Once you do, click on it to create mutations. You can click undo or redo if you make a mistake.

    Post your feedback here, I am working on it rapidly for the next few days. If you make something cool, post it on twitter with tag #zzart

    Thanks for reading, have fun!

    Hi, everyone! This is my 8th post explaining one of these tiny programs. I have a plan to get 10 done by the end of the year.

    Here's the actual javascript code...

    for(c.width|=k=i=960;z=--i;x.fillStyle=`hsl(0 99%${i/9}%`)x.fillRect(k-z*C(j=i/k+t/4)+S(m=k*j)*(r=1e5/z),540+C(m)*r-z*S(j),s=3e4/z*S(j*9),s)

    That's ok, now we have videogames to be "the perfect combination of art and science", which also often contain maps.

    Yes, I think so. It is and art and a science. We make theories, do experiments, investigate how things work. We make models and simulations of physical reality. We have had many breakthroughs, new ideas about how to structure and write code that shake things up.

    I think as time goes on we will see even more of an overlap between computer science and the other sciences. Biology is made of tiny computers like dna. Physics and chemistry are representable as a computer simulations.

    https://2019.js13kgames.com/#winners

    All of these games are playable in browser and are under 13k of javascript!

    There is a separate category for mobile games if you are reading this on a phone.

    I like hazelnuts and chocolate a lot, but I still think Nutella is gross. It's mostly sugar and palm oil, one of the most unhealthy oils. Pure butter would be healthier.

    If you are going to ask for that, it's only fair to run the games in an emulator. And Tekken 3 looks pretty nice in HD!

    Also, how could I forget... "Castlevania: Symphony of the Night"

    Grand Theft Auto 3 blew my mind at the time, but it is hard to play even a few minutes now.
