Generative art with CSS

Translation of Generative art with CSS by Yuanchuan at the 5th CSSConf in China

I haven’t touched generative art since the boring things they make you do in programming 101 courses, but this is truly cool–all the more so when you realize what the animations must look like. Not your father’s CSS! I wonder what might be satisfying to do as an intro level experiment in this sort of thing, just as a toy to host on my website.

Can you imagine what hamster dance ought to look like with a modern stack?


This is really cool. I am terrible at CSS.


julia evans has some really great comics demystifying it here and here
