Wow this is very well done! Comprehensive, well explained, and neat and beautiful.

Stuff like this can save hours to teachers and kids.

Thanks feiss and everyone here for the kind words, they keep me motivated to create more content...

Very useful, thanks! What did you use to create those animations?

I mainly used svg.js which animates SVG as part of an HTML5 document. Other than that the site is static with a lot of custom JS.

Very nice work! I turned to Unity to visualise sorting algorithms (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hq1hNXuwdfQ), but having it on a webpage is much better.

FWIW, you can embed Unity apps/games into websites too. Haven't used it for a while, a few years back there was an HTML5 player, but still in beta I think.

You're right, I think I even tried exporting mine to WebGL, but I think I had some issues with using it on mobile/tablet browsers. I'll check it out again soon!

This is really great, thanks for sharing!

Very good job! I wish I had this when I was introducing algorithms to kids!

Ich bin beeindruckt!

awesome job!
