Processing 2.2.1 / 3.0 Alpha 4

Easily program images, animation and interactions using this open source programming language
Processing is a free and open source programming language/environment designed for people who want to program images, animation, and interactions.

Many students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists use Processing for learning, prototyping, and production.

Processing was created to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context and to be used as a software sketchbook and professional production tool.

Furthermore, Processing is developed by artists and designers as an alternative to proprietary software tools in the same domain.

Processing is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. Binaries for the Windows and Linux platforms are available on the project's homepage.

Detailed instructions on how to use Processing on your Mac are available on its wiki.

Main features:

  • Free to download and open source
  • OpenGL integration for accelerated 3D
  • For GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows
