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 3.5.3:

This fixes a typo that left the "Redo" command with the wrong key shortcut on Windows in the last release, adds updated reference, and includes a handful of other smaller fixes.

Fixes:
  • "Redo" key shortcut for Windows screwed up
  • Fix an editor problem with plain text (css, etc) files
  • Default to using java.awt.Desktop methods for URLs/files when available on Linux. Also cover a few weird cases that were failing silently.
  • Ignore .class files found in the META-INF folder for imported JARs
  • Get rid of errant 'Could not parse -1 for display' message.
  • Fix up and clean a few file i/o issues that were causing resource leaks with loadXxxx() commands, and intermediate folders not being created for temporary files used by the saveXxxx() commands.
Additions:
  • Added reference for circle(), square(), push(), pop()
Contributions:
  • Updated translation of the word "sketch" for Russian speakers
  • Update missing @Deprecated tags in PApplet.java

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.
