Oblique Strategies

Oblique Strategies is a creativity tool designed by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt. It originally took the form of a deck of cards, where each card offers a suggestion towards overcoming a creative block. Meditative, cryptic, and occasionally bombastic, each card's message is open to interpretation.

The app is written in Vanilla JavaScript, using CSS, HTML5, and Webpack. **

Eno and Schmidt's writings are stored in data.js, and selected at random.

** When I started learning to code, one of the first programs I wrote was a command line version of Oblique Strategies.
(I wrote it in Ruby, and yes, it did contain obscenely long methods, $stdin.gets.chomp, and puts many empty strings :D) This is a DRYer, prettier version.
