there is also a 10K contest going on.. where you are allowed to use jQuery. strangely the size of jQuery doesn't count.

After viewing most the current entries i feel i can safely say p01 has nothing to worry about, may as well give him 1st place now ;p

What Trace said.
Got 3 ideas in the pipeline. The first one is already looking good.

neoneye: The 10k contest feels like something for the weak of the (he)art of JavaScript: 10kb + external data + huge ass libraries. Where's the fun ? They will get entires from the legions of Joe JQuery "developers".

Those are some boring entries. :)

I think the 10k contest is intended more as a "create something decent (and useful) that isn't bloated crap" contest than a hardcore size-coding one though. And it expressly isn't a demo compo... so yes, attracting the Joe JQuery developers is kind of the point. :-)

Anyhow, what the JS world needs is more non-size-coded demos. A lot of this <1K stuff is great, but it doesn't really shake off the image of JS being a 'toy' platform. (Yes, I know, I should go write a demo about it.)

Nice, I might give it a try. I rememeber there were some 256-byte HTML compos that I participated in long time ago (whcih p01 also dominated).
Much has happened since then (like the Canvas tag). Should be interesting to see what can be done.

...The 1k thing seems fun. If I can find any time I might have a go.

gasman: words! I should go make a demo about it too, but life keeps me and my mind way too busy for anything else than 'toy' releases every now and then.

Submited... waiting for the approval process... lol
I'm working on something too, if I get it to fit ...

In the meanwhile I really like these two entries:


My 1st contribution http://js1k.com/demo/39 ! :)
Cool. Took me a while to realise it's interactive though :)

I'm impressed at how fast JS stuff is these days. A few more years and maybe we'll be getting really good demos in the browser at last (as in competitive with a normal binary demo, I'd say this stuff is comparable to pre-hardware accelerated demos so far).

that possibility already exists for like 10 years with e.g. java+opengl, it's more like sceners never seemed to really bother doing a demo in a browser. but, now that times change and there are even OSes that are browser based, who knows that 'taboo' might slip away.
Yap, i also that think with a fast JS engine like Chrome V8, all oldschool effects, and demos non-hardware accelerated, are possible.
I just tryit on the iphone and it works! Very slow... but work LOL! Although the mousemove event is freaky...
This compiler seems to give the best results:

In my experience, at such size limit, hand optimizing beats Closure compiler and co hands down.

Just submitted a first entry: 939 bytes with some "design" and heavy stuff :)
added on the 2010-08-06 00:22:22 by p01 p01
Wow p01! Cool. Could you make different resolution versions for the more/less CPU-power-blessed people?

Hope you'll like Quaternion Julia raymarcher with some decent design™

NB: yes it's heavy but it flies at 20fps in Firefox on my 2yo machines.
