Generative Art is the idea realized as genetic code of artificial events, as construction of dynamic complex systems able to generate endless variations. This is also a nuxt-module (@luxdamore/nuxt-canvas-sketch) - [three.js, tensorflow.js and gsap are not included].

πŸ’˜ Motivation

I'm introducing myself into the Generative art, 3D art, Visual design and Creative coding worlds.

So, why i can't do this with my favorite libraries and framework? Infact, this is also a module for NuxtJS, it inject the canvas-sketch library with canvas-sketch-utils and load-asset (from the creative coder Matt DesLauriers).

After installation, you have access in NuxtJS (on the client-side) at two things, $canvasSketch (the main module, used internally) and at the method $sketch (it starts the sketch).

Check out the src/pages folder for some demos. Every page correspond to an example in the main website.

N.B.: This is a work-in-progress project, I'm learning and testing new things here.


Setup

  1. Install @luxdamore/nuxt-canvas-sketch as a dependency:
    • yarn add @luxdamore/nuxt-canvas-sketch;
    • or, npm install --save @luxdamore/nuxt-canvas-sketch;
  2. Append @luxdamore/nuxt-canvas-sketch to the modules array of your nuxt.config.js.

Configuration

    // nuxt.config.js
    export default {

        // Module injection
        modules: [ '@luxdamore/nuxt-canvas-sketch' ],

        // Module configuration
        canvasSketch: {
            hideErrorsInConsole: false,
            hideGenericMessagesInConsole: false, // `true` in production
        },

    };

Usage

I'm using the sketchManager, because i think with VueJS it's the better way to remove and clean handlers during the destroy phase.

    <template>
        <div class="canvas__container">

            <canvas ref="canvas" />

        </div>
    </template>

    <script>
        // Page, component or layout
        export default {
            data: () => (
                {
                    sketchManager: null,
                }
            ),
            async mounted() {

                try {

                    this.sketchManager = await this.$sketch(
                        // Settings of the sketch
                        {
                            maxPixelRatio: 3,
                            hotkeys: false,
                            // or you can pass a DOMCanvasElement ex.
                            // document.querySelector( 'canvas' )
                            canvas: this.$refs.canvas,
                        },
                        // Method for the rendering
                        this.sketch,
                    );

                    // Ensure every listener is removed on-component-destoy
                    this.$once(
                        'hook:beforeDestroy',
                        () => this.sketchManager.unload()
                    );

                } catch( e ) {

                    console.error(
                        e
                    );

                }

            },
            methods: {
                sketch({ context }) {

                    // Here you start coding-art

                    return ({ context }) => {

                        // Here you can return some animated stuff

                    };

                },
            },
        };
    </script>

    <style scoped>
        canvas {

            position: absolute;
            top: 0;
            left: 0;
            z-index: 1;
            display: block;
            width: 100vw;
            height: 100vh;
            margin: 0;
            padding: 0;

        }
    </style>
