Their Ronin project implements a browser based lisp interpreter, which can be used for making generative art. You can play with a program in the playground.

Dotgrid is a grid-based vector drawing software designed to create logos, icons and type. Like their applications, being able to drive the program with keystrokes seems like a feature I’d like to explore. I’m a total dummy when it comes to vector graphics.

Their minimalistic, prose-writing oriented editor Left makes me write my own text editor. I donated $5 and downloaded Left.
