Processing and Processing.js Experiments in Digital Art
Getting the entire development environment working took some doing. For information about the challenges I encountered in getting the Processing 2 Android development environment up and running on my Windows laptop, see my blog post A Simple Android Processing Painting Sketch.
Update 03/26/16: For Processing users interested in developing on a Linux platform, I wrote the following tutorial specifically for the Ubuntu Linux distribution: Installing Processing 3.x on Ubuntu Linux Systems Tutorial.
For my part, while I have written Processing apps for both Android and P5.JS, the standard desktop version of Processing is still my creative coding platform of choice.
