Building Color Visualizer

Categories:

A few months ago I worked on a small project for a metal building manufacturer. The basic idea was a web app where you could color individual pieces of a building to see what it would look like. It’s not a new idea, so I looked around at various web sites that had similar applications and everything I found used server-side logic to handle the coloring. Using canvas, I set out to do everything on the client. With a few hundred lines of code, I created a custom applet in JavaScript that allowed for blazing fast coloring of any image, but in this case was used for buildings. Check it out at Atlas Metal Buildings.
