Javascript 360

Almost a year ago I wrote a small Javascript method that takes a bunch of images (frames) and make with them a spinnable 360 with inertia that works for both desktop and mobile. I also tweaked it a little bit so it could work with a Leap Motion.

The spring effect in JavaScript

In the last weeks I was trying to figure out a way to make things scroll nicer and that doesnt affect negatively the performance. When I start I didnt know exactly what was the result I wanted, so after a few frustrated attempts coding something by my self I start looking for some sort of custom easing functions, how they works, etc. This is how I got to this blog about Physics and JavaScript, specifically to this article about car suspension (Hooke’s Law). And I thought it may works great on scrolling.
