I have for a long time never looked at using JavaScript in any of my projects because of its untyped nature. But now all have changed.
Thanks to the Processing.js project it are now possible to write complex JavaScript code using all familiar typed "Java" syntax used by the language.

You can now take existing Processing "Java" sketches and convert them into into plain JavaScript code without actually changing a line of the original processing .pde file!
WOW!, This are the coolest thing I have seen in a long time since it enables me to start create all kinds of nice HTML5 doodles using the same syntax used in regular "Java" programs and then run them on any HTML5 capable device without actually having to install a "Java" browser plugin!

Have fun and jump instantly into some coding action at: - a online Processing.js IDE!

If you want to get inspired on how to create processing sketches then check out this all awesome OpenProcessing sketch archive at

Here running reach3 from the archive.

Thanks a lot to John Resig for making this work. (Get the source! MIT licensed)
