A great way to make drawings from JS?
So, jQuery-powered animated data visualization?
Maybe a JQuery interface to flash, something similar to AJAX.
My guess it’s sth. like Aflax. I hope so, cause that’s where Flash has it’s strength. I would be surprised if *js only* could come to flash’s framerates and smoothness.
but i also like being surprised :-)
must be fun watching us squirm…
I thought I’d add my tuppence worth since I’m intrigued: I’m assuming it’s not flash or flex – since the functionality already exists in those environments.
I’m also assuming that it’s not via Firefox 3 (or is it some bad ass OpenGL animation?) – so I’m guessing SVG animation, and like others, that there’s some JS layer on top, either via jQuery or some other library.
Either way – very nice effects :-)
In the modern internet you really shouldn’t come with .mov files. Some of us have nasty sysops at work that don’t allow us to install the software required. Most of us have Flash.
Just thought I’d let ya know ;) Looking forward to seeing the video once I’m back home, though!
I agree with Remy, I’m hoping that there’s IE support.
in the modern internet you really shouldn’t use flash. some of us have nasty sysops at work that don’t allow us to install the software required. most of us have character-based terminals and know how to telnet to port 80 and how to speak http. it’s a pita to decode pngs in your head, let alone swf movies (that sometimes contain pngs themselves!)
just thought i’d let ya know.
p.s. now i’m going to go out and buy that vhs edition of star wars. if it’s half as good as the ascii version, i’m in for a treat.
Maybe he’s just gonna have a business meeting and dose everybody right before he fires up PowerPoint.
It’s the potentialstock price of jQuery industries? jQuery is going public?
you’re adding animated graphs to jQuery because you want our graphserver to suck less! (http://graphs.mozilla.org)
I want that too. Also, pie charts.
dude, its <canvas/>
yup looks to be canvas yay! again!
SVG on Gran Paradiso?
One word: Wow!
heh — “Aflax”.
â€œSoonerâ€, huh? :)
