Fun with canvas... together!

Sat, 20 Jan 2022

So, I'm kinda done with a small and stress-free project I started a week ago. I've made an online drawing board that everyone can draw in together in real time. Inspired by

The cool thing about it I guess is that there's a timer that takes a snapshot of the board every few hours. The hours are choosen at random, but you can see the countdown at the top. You can then see all the previous snapshots when you visit the site and click on them.

Stuff was pretty comfy to develop. Also Node is surprisingly fun to code in. I know lot of people hate it, and they have reasons since some packages are more bloated than whale carcasses after few days at the beach, but if you keep it clean, don't get in dependency hell, Node and javascript are really comfy and simple tools to use.
