@migurski I'm finding some fun resources now that support some live tinkering with shaders, which I think goes a long long way to helping me get my head around it. Like this one thebookofshaders.com/

@arunisaac WebDAV is one of those things in my experience that sounds like a good idea, but then all the implementations are either terrible to use or terrible to set up or both.

Github API at least leaves you with a git repo you can walk away with, and it's simpler to use. Could also target Gitlab.

@strypey FWIW, I've been tempted to build something like that for my blog. The GitHub API mostly accommodates that straight from a browser single-page-app with one small server assist. Something like this github.com/vrypan/jekyll-post- @arunisaac

Hmm, got some lines that look a little more vector-y, but still have no idea how it works and have some weird artifacts lmorchard.github.io/play-webgl

I just spent 20 minutes searching for this video I saw in high school Spanish class as a response to a comment thread and now I forget even what I was replying to. youtube.com/watch?v=ngwBgwC_8f

@craigmaloney The only reason I even understood linear algebra is because chunks of it were taught in terms of application to 2D & 3D graphics. Calculus was all proofs & theorems and no application :/

@craigmaloney Yeah, I theoretically topped out with linear algebra and calculus in college, but the calculus turned into Peanuts wah-wah trumpets in my head

@craigmaloney But a) I don't really understand the math and b) I kind of broke it intentionally to maybe see what the variables were doing. WebGL shaders are hard, they don't have a console.log

@craigmaloney Well, it was supposed to look more like oscilloscope lines, since I stole the shader code from here :) m1el.github.io/woscope-how/ind

Drinking an Averna & tonic and trying to soak my head in WebGL

@craigmaloney Huh, no, actually I've been meaning to upgrade and haven't gotten around to it :)

Musing about a short story like Ray Bradbury's "There Will Come Soft Rains" except it's when the last capitalist dies and the automated factory keeps producing en.wikipedia.org/wiki/There_Wi
