Adaptation layer to run PICO-8 scripts on norns.
PICO-8 is a platform that shares a lot of similarities with norns. Both revolves around the idea of a community sharing small apps. The main difference is that it targets video games while norns focuses on music.
Like norns apps are made in Lua. Like norns the drawing API is quite limited.
Both project can be compared to the homebrew BASIC programming scene in the late 70s / early 80s.
One particular phenomenon that emerged with PICO-8 are tweetcarts, people posting code fitting on in a tweet.
These show that you don’t need a super fancy graphical lib to do some impressive stuff, not too dissimilar to the demoscene.
I got the crazy idea of making an adaptation layer allowing those tweetcarts to run on norns.
Hopefully this can help you get inspired to create clean animations for you next norns app.
The project readme should get you covered.
It also comes with several examples and links to their original authors.
