After starting my blog, I got a few comments on my @gguuss twitter account about the animated background that I have. So, I figured I would write a short post about it. What is paper.js? I’m sure that its creators will scoff at me for saying this, but in my simple mind, paper.js takes canvas and makes it better.
In this experiment we are testing Layers feature of paper.js. We are writing bunch of elements into different layers, changing layer order, and moving layers as we move the mouse for so called “Parallax Scroll”. Se the DEMO here.
UPDATE 07/20/11: Updated the demo to take better advantage of built-in Paper.js features. UPDATE 07/27/11: Compacted the demo even further utilizing the active layer object. Recently, we’ve been exploring various vector graphics libraries in an order to craft some more compelling data visualizations. I’ll admit, we weren’t too enthusiastic about the prospect of manipulating SVG or learning some strange custom syntax. Fortunately for us, Paper.js was released a few weeks back.
The Web is just starting to use animation well. For years, animated GIFs and Flash ruled. Text moved and flashed, but it was never seamless.
