Well, in my 2013-roundup, I made a sweeping declaration I would build an HTML5 version of the Dooodl creator by the end of January. As I had a bit too much client work, I didn’t quite make it by the end of January. However, it’s here now!
But why is this rebuild such a huge deal? Well, in fact: The HTML5 version seems to be a lot more reliable and produce a lot smoother drawing curves. I love it. And even better: I built this thing in a way it allows me to integrate new brushes. Actual ‘brushes‘; not just squares and circles. So not only does that allow me to make the V2 of Dooodl (scheduled somewhere this summer) a lot cooler with new realistic brushes. It also allows me to add a feature where users can upload their own brushes. Just upload a transparent PNG with the shape of your brush and the creator takes care of the rest! This will result in some very cool drawings! I can’t wait for that to be ready!
So that’s it! HTML5 version with a lot of new potential, way better reliability, working on tablets and although there’s no real change, it’s already an improvement over the earlier versions! As always, you can see Dooodl in the footer of my site. Feel free to draw some cool stuff 🙂
