Swing Panorama

The Swing

Deep in the foothills of Wicklow a new web app is quickly taking shape. But when I lose concentration I’m pretty lucky to be able to step out the front door and go walk in the woods. On the hill opposite the house there is a huge, sprawling tree. And hanging from a branch is a swing. This is one of my favourite places in the world. You sit here swinging slowly, iPod cranked up, the winter sun warming away the chills. You can see the sea sparkling in the distance and you can’t help but feel good. And you think…

“Hey! I could make a nice little javascript panorama viewer/editor pretty easily!”

So there goes the rest of the afternoon :). I’ve put the result on this page because WordPress doesn’t seem to accomodate javascript in posts (Anyone know of a plugin for that?).

Feel free to put your own images in and nick it. In fact this widget was specifically designed to be copied. Like some broody, psuedo-biological AI it can reproduce its own source code with whatever modifications you like. It won’t be long until it takes over the world ;). Select ‘Edit’ and, when you’ve finished making your own panorama, click ‘Get the Code’. Let me know if you find any problems with it.
