Fractal Plant


    May 06 2012 | 9:22 am
    I was trying to replicate in Javascript the Fractal Plant example provided by odewahn1 in the O'Reilly forum, originally done in processing. Obviously with little success. Seems the recursion is not working as expected. Any idea how to modify it?

      there is 'var' missing in line 54 in function fractal():
      for (var i = 0; i < branches; i++)

      Great !!! Thank you for the lesson
      I am absolutely new in JavaScript so i have primitive questions: Is it possible to create inlets for dynamic change of parameters such as branches, depth, minAngle etc I guess it should be smth like:
      function branches(v) { branches = v; } and then massage box to the JSobject ( branches $1 ) ......but this doesn`t work
      And another question if it possible to "grow" this tree from line to line?
      Ps. i know one good answer: "go and learn JS!" )) ..... but anyway

      yes, i think its possible. try inlets = 0; if (jsarguments.length >= 2) inlets = jsarguments[1]; if (!inlets) inlets = 1; // default value function branches(v){ inlets = v; branches = v; paint(); }
