I'm using 'get-rgba-palette' module I created on npm, which in turn is depending on 'quantize' for the actual color quantization. It isn't perfect but this is more a proof of concept. I've found Self-Organizing Maps to be really great for colour quantization, but very slow.

Yup that should be possible. I'm going to be exploring with some 3D + WebGL + GLSL plugins as well.

Yup, I created both of these plugins and plan to keep experimenting.

Experimenting with some generative design plugins in . This one repeats a text element radially, inspired by some of The 1975's typographic posters.

Right now you can use canvas-sketch and a code editor like VSCode to have a pretty similar experience:

Not sure to be honest! I've only been testing this so far with Figma generated PDFs, which is my primary use case as the PDFs are pretty huge from Figma.

Published a node/npm tool that optimizes PDFs with Ghostscript. Test PDF generated by Figma goes from 3.7 MB to 642 KB. →

If you can, please spread the word! I'm looking to take on more freelance work for July. My pieces focus on dismantling the societal tropes set upon women. I've been fortunate enough to work with Gucci, NBC, Adidas, and I'd love to work with you:

No immediately obvious but this would open up some 'widgets' that could be integrated into the code more easily, e.g. sliders, colour pickers, etc.

Testing out some ideas, still always searching for that newbie-friendly Processing GUI... 🙃 - canvas-sketch running on parcel-bundler under the hood (hot/live coding as you type) - Electron + monaco-editor for an integrated code + app

Well done — all the work in your show was great! 👏 Really outstanding to see what you've been able to achieve with ML.

I think this is all fair, and probably could have been better communicated in the postinstall message. The contentious GH thread adds a lot of context which is not obvious upon seeing a generic advertisement abusing the npm post-install hooks.

Hell, if even one of my 550+ free and OSS modules made $100 USD in revenue, I would be pretty happy.

I think its a fair point, although it will be interesting to see whether this sets a precedent. I just installed several hundred modules from various authors (many of them my own OSS modules) and only one author is currently using the logs for their own advertisement.
