Jordan Eldredge has been working hard to make Webamp even more rad:
Take a trip down memory lane with this faithful WebGL port of MilkDrop, the iconic music Winamp visualizer.
Check it out in Chrome and Firefox. What should you listen to while the visualizer does its thing? Our episode all about Webamp, of course. 🤓
This is a spectacular project by Diana Smith:
Rules I have for myself:
- All elements must be typed out by hand
- Only Atom text editor and Chrome Developer Tools allowed.
- SVG use is limited, and all shapes can only use hand-plotted coordinates and bezier curves - without the aid of any graphics editor.
The results are stunning, to say the least. I won’t embed the image here, because it won’t do it justice. You have to click through and see it for yourself.
We shared stories about Winamp back in the day, actually listening to music as an mp3, the technical hurdles and learning Jordan has experienced, skinning it, playlists, making it a frontend for Spotify – which is so ironic to actually say. Also, Jerod has been hacking it via livestream on Twitch to add it as an alternate audio player on Changelog.com.
Jordan shared this super fun project in our Slack and hilarity ensued. 10/10 would meme again 🎖
