I love creating sites, but they're often boring and uninteractive. So wee wanted to give web developers a place to get interactive backgrouds to spice up their website.

What it does

It's (currently small) library of dynamic javascript backgrounds using the <canvas> tag for use in websites

How I built it

Website built using bootstrap, the backgrounds with pure JS and <canvas> element

Challenges I ran into

JavaScript is a real challenge when you use it for something it's not really designed to do. The lack of a proper scope in js creating a lot of problems.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Finishing this in 9 hours, while dealing with all the bugs and errors of js

What I learned

A lot more about JS, the element, and Bootstrap.

What's next for The Background Factory

Make the website more presentable, and finalize it.
