genart

Generative art for the rest of us. This is an attempt to create a nice api for creating generative art. Built on top of a modified Paper.js.

Getting Started

Install the module with: npm install genart

Generate some art!

genart -i ../examples/circle.js -o ~/genart.png

Documentation

Since genart is simply extending paper.js, take a look at the paper.js docs for more details.

More docs coming soon.

Examples

The extensions can be seen in this example:

var circle = new canvas.Path.Circle([0, 0], 50)
    .set({
        fillColor: 'red',
        strokeColor: 'green',
        strokeWidth: 2,
        opacity: 0.2,
        blendMode: 'overlay'
    })
    .nthChild('15n', function() {
        this.fillColor = 'yellow';
    })
    .nthChild('6n', function() {
        this.scale(0.5);
    })
    .tile();

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using grunt.
