Embedded Brainfuck Canvas

Brainfuck is a turing-complete programming language and abstract machine which has only eight operators.

I’ve written a greasemonkey script which searches webpages for specially formatted brainfuck programs, and turns them into graphics by running a brainfuck interpreter and piping the output of the program to an HTML 5 canvas element.

Full details of the implementation are available on my website, where the embedded brainfuck canvas greasemonkey script can also be downloaded.

Here is an example program:

And here is what it looks like when it runs: Brainfuck Spectrum program

Invisible in most major operating systems until recently, the unicode specification defines a bunch of weird tables which are intended to be used as mathematical variables, for people who are not satisfied with good old a to z, a′ to z′, a′′ to z′′, etc.

Many of these are composed of the full roman alphabet, meaning a fun hack is possible which allows you to type with a weird font in places where you cannot normally use formatting – such as a filename, facebook status, or anywhere you can type unicode text.

I’ve made a little script which allows you to enter some text and have it transformed into the silly font of your choosing.
