    A minimal boilerplate for Astro / Vite with the Nannou creative framework (Rust → WASM). Supports multiple sketches + hot-reload.

    Project mention: Astro / Vite and Nannou (Rust). WebGPU goodness for creative coding | | 2022-12-29

    This is a minimal boilerplate for Astro / Vite with the Nannou creative framework (Rust → WASM).

    Supports multiple sketches + hot-reload.

    It can be a good starter for any Rust + WASM workspace, not necessarily for creative coding ;)

  • rustmas

    Christmas lights controller capable of displaying 3D animations

    Project mention: Rustmas: 3D animations on your Christmas tree | /r/rust | 2022-12-19

    The entire thing (including the web frontend!) is written in Rust, and is [available on GitHub](, so if your interested, you can try running it yourself! If you don't have programmable lights, we have also implemented an OpenGL visualiser^1, and included a sample set of light coordinates. The instructions are all included in the repository. The process for setting up your own lights is unfortunately a bit involved, but only has to be done once.
