Defining Terms

Dinosaur Remix

I like Dinosaur Comics. Since the drawings and panels are the same in every comic, I thought of the idea of trying to mix and match panels from different comics to see what comes out. It turns out, Ryan North had already done something similar, but I decided to implement my idea anyway. Here’s the result:

Dinosaur Remix

Dinosaur Remix lets you randomly mix together panels, but also lock in certain panels to make a comic you like. Then you can add clever alt text and save it or send it to a dinosaur-loving friend!

It’s written in Python, PHP, and JavaScript. It was my first chance to really use jQuery, which is just about as awesome as everyone says it is. All of the code is available on GitHub.
