Plasma Fractal Generator Using Meteor Javascript Framework

Hey Floppers,

A while back I created a couple of neat apps using the Meteor Javascript framework and I thought it might be nice to share them with you all.

The first is a plasma fractal generator... you know, that thing you did for a project at university and then never looked at again for the rest of your life?

Check it out:

If you haven't checked out, do so immediately! I suppose saying that it is a framework is a bit of an understatement; it is more of a platform consisting of a number of proven frameworks like node.js and handlebars.

There are a few totally awesome features on top of these though, such as live page updates when you edit source code, which is really nice for development, and latency compensation, which is great for online games. You can watch the screencast on their site for more details; it's pretty mind-blowing!

Even better news, they recently secured an $11.2 million development budget, so the developers can work on Meteor full-time. This means we're sure to see consistent, quality improvements on this burgeoning platform in the weeks and months to come.

Seriously, have a play around with it and if you make something cool post it on their Made With Meteor site (I got first post on their with my hangwithme app, no biggie, whatevs; I'll post that up soon too).
