We were inspired by the live canvas Reddit hosted a while back and wanted to try something similar.

What it does

Anyone can draw on the canvas on the website, but only one pixel at a time. the goal is to have multiple people collaborate to draw something cool.

How we built it

We used javascript and CSS to build the user interface and used PHP to send the canvas data between the client and the server.

Challenges we ran into

We were unable to host the website on a VPS, so we had to resort to hosting on one of our computers.

What we learned

We learned how to make a website using PHP, HTML, and javascript

What's next for Pixweb

we hope to make the website update the canvas without having to reload.
