On Glitch This Week

_gw profile image Gareth Wilson Originally published at ・2 min read

Glitch This Week is a regular series in which we round-up just some of the amazing projects that fantastic creators have made on Glitch. Here are a few projects that caught our eye this week.

Get Doodling

Lingdong Huang's "doodle-place" is a virtual world inhabited by user-submitted, computationally-animated doodles. Anyone can draw something, which then gets automatically animated before being added to a wireframe world populated with other folk's doodles.

Of course, this is the internet, so the user-submitted doodles are frequently phallic. But it's a lot of fun nonetheless 😅

Make a Zine

We love zines at Glitch - we've even made a few of our own. So I will admit to having something of a soft spot for "zine-machine" by Rowan Merewood.

It's a template for making zines that you can read online or print, cut, and fold to make your own physical version. You know, to read IRL. This voodoo is achieved through a print-specific CSS grid layout. But by remixing the template, you're a big chunk of the way along to making your own zine.

Celebrate Emoji Makers

If your workplace is anything like mine, your group chat is a whole lot of custom emojis. Well, it seems that the Financial Times is a lot like that too, at least judging from Bren Brightwell's app, "ft-emoji-league". It's a league table for Slack workspace custom emojis, listing the names of folks who have created the most. You can remix it, swap a few variables, and see who has a little too much time on their hands in your office.

Other apps in this week's round-up include an online multiplayer world made entirely of emojis, a favicon that shows a page preview, and a minimal i18n library. Check them out!
