Consider the paintbrush:
simple enough for a child, complex enough for an Old Master.
That's what any artistic tool should strive for,
and the art of programming deserves a tool that's more creative, more alive.Joy.js is a tool for making tools like that.
EASY & EXPRESSIVE
With regular coding: tweak a number, compile, see the result seconds later, tweak again, repeat 'til bored.
With Joy.js: change the code by clicking / dragging / hovering, and see the result immediately.
This lets you improvize, and discover "happy little accidents"!
SEE WHOLE SYSTEMS
No need to second-guess the program, to "play computer" in your head.
If you want to understand what a system does,
you can simply hover over the step numbers,
and see the system build itself step by step.
SAVE & SHARE
And finally, when you make a tool with Joy.js, your users
will be able to save and share their work, and remix each others' creations!
(Note for developers: Joy.js "saves data" in the URL itself... meaning, no need to set up a server or database!)
