What is it?
p5.js Vs Processing.js
What does this mean?
Effectively p5.js allows developers to create advanced audio (Yup, theres already a well stocked audio library) and visual presentations on the web which can form the bulk of, or some part of, a webpage. Using the additional DOM library users can even interact with the HTML DOM presenting possibilities for all kinds of interactivity.
Where can i find out more?
Firstly you’ll want to head over to p5js.org where you’ll find downloads for the library, the alpha version of the dedicated p5.js development environment and a short presentation from Lauren McCarthy and Dan Shiffman about p5.js.
There are also tutorials on the basics of the language, the differences from traditional Processing as well as a lesson explaining how realtime apps can be developed with p5.js and node.js.
