  • Do drawing program, that lets you draw on things in the real world. Ie, if you put the QR code on your shirt, I can take a picture of you wearing it and then draw a moustache and funny hair on you. Now when I hold up my camera and take a picture of you, the moustache and funny hair follow you wherever you go!
  • rotate after you draw, then draw some more, like http://www.webgl.com/2012/03/webgl-application-html5-sketch/

http://westcoastlogic.com/lawnchair/ # cross-platform wrapper for HTML local storage APIs

CSA wishlist: a 'console' that runs in the browser which lets you execute 'console-mode' javascript tools, with standard unixy stdin/stdout/pipe goodness. ie, "js$ hello-world.js | wc.js > output.txt"

Apps, not libraries:

Promises:

There seems to be momentum behind the "Promises/A" syntax (as opposed to the gjs API which I wrote for litl).

Parsers:

Misc:

Not really JS

Move these?
