Jandig ARte

ARte is a Progressive Web App for augmented reality artworks. Our goal is to give a way for artists share their artworks in a simple and free way.

You can see galleries with pictures of exhibitions created with Jandig.

How it works

Jandig ARte uses image pattern detection to detect augmented reality markers through the camera of a device and render a content (currently a GIF) on the device screen, giving the impression that your device is like a virtual window that you are looking at.


Jandig ARte is a Progressive Web App, which means you can open in every device with a browser and a camera. Also you can add Jandig ARte to your homescreen and it will run like a native app on your device.


We are a small team based in Brazil :D talk to us on Telegram. There's a list of the main contributors of Jandig development:


We are looking for artists (both illustrators and animators) to create great content and help us testing the platform, people to translate our website from Portuguese to English (and vice versa), and developers to help us with the platform, please contact us via the Telegram channel or an issue on GitHub!


You can find interviews and references to Jandig in the press here.
