I need to port a project that I’ve been working off and on for the past couple of years to the web.
It has various incarnations-- in java, in python, and even a bit of foray into lua (codea). I’d like to port as much as I can to the web, so that I don’t have to teach users to use the command line. Also, it really needs a stable graphical editor.
The project involves mathematical diagrams-- specifically tailor’s patterns.
Sort of like this:
Given that I want users to be able to generate vector graphics according to a recipe with user supplied parameters, and also to modify those recipes using an editor with a nice gui, what sort of frameworks should I be looking at?
Is RapahelJS going to work?
Right now, the programs logic exists as python scripts. I have a buggy java swing editor, and I can generate files in SVG, DXF, and a proprietary format I’ve been able to reverse engineer, But I to be able to write something anybody can use using a modern browser.
