Hello everyone, My name is Xinyu You, a second-year postgraduate student of the National University of Defense Technology (NUDT), China.
After Play with Processing, I find that I really love this! It’s one of the best cross-application of art and Computer Science！
So, I have an idea for Swift Playground Mode for Processing.
The benefits to do so:
The Swift programming language is easy, fast and safe. It has a very active community and development community.
There is an Android Version for Processing. But there is no iOS Version which also has a large user community, for Processing.
The Swift Playgrounds (Both on Mac and iPad) can help people learn and create in an interactive environment designed for touch. People can write Processing code in the left half and see real-time art effects in the right half.
Swift Playgrounds’s Processing on the iPad is not only suitable for the artist but also good for children to learn and play with Processing to create artwork.
In general, doing this is very beneficial for Processing or the iOS community.
So, If this proposal is acceptable, I would like to discuss:
- Whether it can participate in GSoC 2019 and is there any mentor who can guide me through the process?
- If this proposal can participate, I would like to discuss the feasibility with everyone, such as whether to use the JVM like other languages or to use native Swift (for example, for image processing, there is Core Graphics Framework).
More About Me:
I have a strong Computer Science background and experience in iOS development. I have great communication ability. I write a blog (data2art.com) in Chinese. I have planned to write more posts in English.
