Is It Shorts Weather Today?

Is It Shorts Weather Today?

Many years ago, I thought about building a site that just told you if you should wear shorts or not. That’s it.

It uses your location and a little bit of logic to give you an easy yes or no.

I’ve used it as a way to experiment with new languages and frameworks. It’s been Ruby, Go and Node, but the latest incarnation is plain HTML, CSS & JavaScript.

I had worked my way through a course in making art with code and wanted to show off my new skills. As part of the 2021 rebuild, I made a trippy generative background with WebGL. It even starts semi-randomly each time you refresh.
