How to make creative, interactive art projects in JavaScript


This site is a collection of links to libraries, frameworks, services, articles, tutorials and other resources that seem helpful for creating interactive, expressive artwork via JavaScript. It's intended to accompany and supplement my talk of the same name.

Libraries & Frameworks

Articles & Tutorials

Audio

Books

Topics include making art through computers, creativity & JavaScript

It's not hard to find good online tutorials and examples that show you had to make a ball bounce across the screen, animate text or even experiment with facial recognition in the browser. I still find it helpful to read books on these topics—even real, physical books I can throw in a bag and take to the beach.
