Processing for babies is a piece of satirical software I wrote making fun of how Processing is always lauded as “so simple it’s perfect for artists to use code”. If it’s so easy, why not let babies use it?

In order to make this, I forked the source code of the Processing IDE, and re-skinned it with a childish font and color scheme. There were a few difficulties, but anything I couldn’t easily remedy, I baked into the project by leaving complicated instructions for your baby to follow. You can download it, follow the instructions, and run your real Processing sketches on it with pretty new shiny colors.
