Civan Özseyhan for Refine

Server-Side, data-driven animation & video rendering with nodejs.

In this demo, we created a nodejs application generating weather forecast videos on-the-fly.

Edit on 31 Aug 2020:

The demo is now a fully working nodejs library. You can check it out from:

I am very interested in implementation.

Is it possible to share source code?
