Introducing my latest project: Fireworks Tap Toy
On this year's Fourth of July, my toddler son discovered a love of fireworks. With Fireworks Tap Toy, I'm trying to bring some of that magic to the touch screen.
Tap, click, type, or go into "auto launch" mode.
This project is a remix of a few other projects:
- Tap Toy
, which has its own story
- I copied and modified index.html and progressive web app pieces
- I copied over touch, mouse, and keyboard support
- I copied over sound effects and music utilities
- An old codepen
- You can add Fireworks Tap Toy to your home screen on iOS or Android. If you do that, it'll behave more like a normal app. (I did the extra bit of work to make this a "progressive web app")
- If you give this to a kid, you can use Guided Access
to prevent them from leaving the app
