Why do I need p5.js?

hey, i just found out about this Pink library, but can't understand real world applications for p5.js What can it be? I looked at https://p5js.org/gallery/ and im not sure it's going to be useful in many projects. It looks like p5.js is not for web Developers?


  • RTFM :P

    p5.js is a JavaScript library that starts with the original goal of Processing, to make coding accessible for artists, designers, educators, and beginners, and reinterprets this for today’s web.

    Essentially it's something of a jack-of-all-trades (but master of none): it mainly gives you tools to interact with a canvas element; but also with DOM elements.

    From a web dev living in the real world perspective you may be better off with other, more mature, libraries. The DOM library in particular is fairly rudimentary and offers very little over VanillaJS...
