Ingo Posted May 10, 2014 Share Posted May 10, 2014 Hi ! Being a Java-developer, I am not strong when it comes to frontend.I would like to give it a shot. I would like to find a tool, I would like HTML5 to be that tool, to be able to create a canvaswhere I plot simple rectangles and circles in different size and colors. See this from above, a rectangle ( the canvas ) with a number of circles plotted on - no connection between the circles. I would like every object on the canvas to have a timeline ( as in implementing an interface which has stages, from birth to death, and that it grows - so the circle would start at a radius at like 5x up to its maximum at 100x and then finally vanishing to 0x , going from colour green when it is young, to blue at its max height and to red before dying and leaving space ).When a circle is painted on the canvas, it stays there - like a tree - and grows and dies on that spot.I would like to place all circles in an xml-file or csv-file or a hash like below:name: circle-1 radiusWhenBorn: 5 radiusWhenMiddle:100 radiusWhenDead:0 colorYouth green colorMiddle:blue colorOld:red birthdate : 2014-05-10 deathdate:2014-06-10Something like that, just throwing it out.Something close to 'game of life' in some sense. Would that be possible ?So If a start the timeline by creating 10 independent circles, all with their different life-timeline, growing and dying according to an algorithm. the start and end-time can be date with time but I could run it 'fast' so that I would not have to wait for a year. I guess I could do this in Java-Swing, but I would like the learning experience here as well. Hope that someone can advice me here and ge me started. regards, Ingo Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
