Programming language for electronic arts.

Overview

Processing is a programming language and environment built for the electronic arts and visual design communities. It was created to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context and to serve as a software sketchbook. The software exports Java applets which may be posted on the Internet and shared with other artists and designers.

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

What's new in Processing

Version 3.5.4:

This release has several bug fixes to improve the Contribution Manager, get Tweak Mode working again, and so on.

Changes
  • Don't remove entries from Recent menu on Save As
  • Use ctrl-page up/down for changing tabs on Windows
  • Show error when .properties file is missing from a Library/Mode/Tool.
Fixes
  • Tweak Mode working again (fix from Gal Sasson)
  • Fix potential highlighting issue that wasn't selecting portions of text
  • Names in the contribution listing are no longer case sensitive (It was placing lowercase names at the bottom of the list.)
  • Clean up a lot of bad temp file handling in the contrib manager
  • Fix NullPointerException in installPreviouslyFailed() on startup
Internal
  • Ignore subfolders in the "libraries" directory. This was causing some nasty startup issues for folks, and other hard-to-track bugs. Hopefully there aren't any installs that relied on this behavior.
  • Update AppBundler to use newer SDK, recompile
  • Edit build.xml files and appbundler to preserve more attributes

Some people are just plain mean, Chris, annoyed because you give Processing 4.5 stars without saying why and then refer your readers to a competing app.

There must be an mixed-up. I don't remenber rating this app (Processing). My rating should be about commercial LiveCode. Sorry if the mistake is mine. And the reason is that it evolves too fast. Too many changes in a short time.

This is very similar to Java. It's quite easy to learn. Incredible work made with Processing (with source code available): http://www.complexification.net/gallery/

Yes, I tried once to just copy and run the code from one one the applets but it failed. I guess it could have something to do with these applets being built on one of the first versions of Processing but don't take my word for it.
