October 2021 OPENRNDR news

Hi! Even if this forum is not always super busy it doesn’t mean things aren’t moving in the OPENRNDR world :slight_smile: Most of the activity happens in Slack and GitHub so I thought it might be good to leave a more public update here. Here it goes:


The main branch of GitHub - openrndr/openrndr: OPENRNDR. A Kotlin/JVM library for creative coding, real-time and interactive graphics is now on version 0.4 and the biggest change is probably that we can now target web browsers.

To give it a try clone GitHub - openrndr/openrndr-js-template: OPENRNDR + Kotlin/JS template .

Not everything has been ported yet to JavaScript but it’s already very capable. For example see this interactive piece by @edwin running in the browser:

New website

It contains a new showcase video. Check it out at http://openrndr.org/.
