Cinder: The Free, Open Source C++ Library For Creative Coding


Cinder, a “peer-reviewed, free, open source C++ library for creative coding” started by the folks at The Barbarian Group, has emerged from its early beginnings as an internal resource into a powerful community of developers. As you’ll see below, Cinder is joining the likes of openFrameworks and Processing, and is worth a look for any developer itching to embrace their creative side.

We are happy to display some work that will definitely inspire you to a great extent. Take a look and then let us know your thoughts in the comments:
