TURNING CODE INTO A POEM

It’s text with more life
Code in Java nation
And loop bands
The grid shows how,
Allows the constraints
to be put into place.
The coordinate system,
Intertwined like lace.
The S is the goal
So you need to control
How vertices interact.
Gives you a nice swerve
Keeps your letter intact.
This animation is coded so that letters can move. An “Anitype” is animated text – in this case, the letter ‘S’ In java script.
This code is authored by Sam Ticknor (my sister).
Variables: create lines and shapes using points on a grid.
The x and y values are the points to use.
Two.Commads.curve create arches instead of vertices.
Clone the previous sets of vertices so the path loops/wraps.
Code for animation using a time range from 0-1 second.
