Patternizer

Let’s do this!

Patternizer lives!

It started as a small stripe script I wrote based on the Cicada Principle article. From there I said “I wonder what would happen if I made a plaid mode.” And the rest is history. Months later, a fancy front-end UI and a back-end user system pull it all together.

I have a lot of ideas for Patternizer that I hope to put into future releases. Here’s some of the things rolling around in my head :

  • Exporting an image.
  • Pattern History, probably with thumbnails.
  • Pattern titles to keep things organized.
  • If enough people want it, I can make a CSS gradient output. CSS gradients for patterns don’t look good at non-ordinal angles though, so don’t expect it to look nice.

If you have any ideas, or want to convince me to do these sooner than later, holler at me.

It’s a really fun tool, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
