This week was a productive one!

  • I improved last week TypeScript unit testing
  • Created particles emitters

  • Learnt about Spatial Hash Maps to improve performances of particles (w/ help of another contributor)
  • Fixed the collision system that was just random, now it has math 🀣

  • Created particles absorbers (black holes)

  • A lot of refactoring and bug fixing, but it's not much exciting 🀣

Some folks from our team just finished DEVS on Hulu.

We were just talking about it because of GitHub being down.

Probably deserves its own thread due to spoilers...

I had no idea this show existed, I'll have to give it a shot!

Thanks for asking. My week has been going ok so far. I've been dealing with errors in nodejs and python recently, but learning about threejs has kept me happy so far.

How to write a kickass README

Arguably the single most important piece of documentation for any open source project is the README. A good README not only informs people what the project does and who it is for but also how they use and contribute to it.

If you write a README without sufficient explanation of what your project does or how people can use it then it pretty much defeats the purpose of being open source as other developers are less likely to engage with or contribute towards it.
