Hydra is a platform for live coding visuals, in which each connected browser window can be used as a node of a modular and distributed video synthesizer.
Built using WebRTC (peer-to-peer web streaming) and WebGL, hydra allows each connected browser/device/person to output a video signal or stream, and receive and modify streams from other browsers/devices/people. The API is inspired by analog modular synthesis, in which multiple visual sources (oscillators, cameras, application windows, other connected windows) can be transformed, modulated, and composited via combining sequences of functions.
Available as a platform as well as a set of standalone modules
Cross-platform and requires no installation (runs in the browser)
Also available as a package for live coding from within atom text editor
Experimental and forever evolving !!
