Processing releases Processing.js v1.1

Processing.js is the sister project of the popular Processing visual programming language, designed for the web. Processing.js makes your data visualizations, digital art, interactive animations, educational graphs, video games, etc. work using web standards and without any plug-ins. You write code using the Processing language, include it in your web page, and Processing.js does the rest.

In basic terms, Processing.js converts Processing code to JavaScript and runs it in the browser, using “canvas” download Processing.js here. Make your Processing *.pde files as you normally would. Create a web page that includes Processing.js as well as a “canvas” (JavaScript tag) with info about where to get your sketch file (you can specify multiple *.pde files, separating them with spaces). Load your web page, and it will parse, translate, and run your sketch in the browser. It would allow you to write interactive code to communicate with a web interfaced Arduino much the same way as Processing and Arduino can interact using the appropriate libraries.
