HTML5 Fractal Playground 1.1, April 6, 2014

Last month, I wrote about a new personal open-source project that I just put out called "HTML5 Fractal Playground". In the intervening days, I have had time to tinker with the program some more and I've added some features that will be important for anyone who wants to use the program to learn about fractals.

I think that I have the functionality to draw the fractals working very well, and so for the next version, I would like to improve the user interface. I like that I have written this so that the user can modify the code that computes the fractal, but I do recognize that this is too advanced for most users. I would like to offer the user the option to select from a number of fractals from a drop-down list or the like. I also would like to put most of the controls in a dialog box so that that can be shown and hidden, instead of the user having to scroll up and down.

Finally, I would like to eventually introduce other ways of coloring the plot.

Maximum Real Part: -0.15286695268191625
Minimum Imaginary Part: -1.0389919858899233
