Södra Pulp Labs

A responsive HTML5 site with a pleasantly nerdy Labs view which presents the website as colored cells in a Voronoi diagram. Because of the tardyness of canvas on mobile devices we’re generating the entire diagram using NodeJS as a PNG along with a JSON graph which allows us to only render the smallest possible area in the canvas.

This, and a hand optimized voronoi renderer, made it possible to use the lab view even on an old iPad 1. Then we threw in an easter egg where the user also can see other users navigating the labs, made simple by Socket.IO.

And to this we built a general dead-simple-to-use backend in NodeJS, with features found in other systems like Wordpress or RefineryCMS but built for speed and modularity. We are aiming for releasing the CMS open source later this year.
