my projects

boids

jsthree.js

A 3D implementation of the Boids flocking simulation using three.js. I made this project out of a personal interest in the algorithm; it was easy to understand and gave interesting results. My implementation uses a 3D binary tree to reduce the average time complexity when searching for nearby boids. If I continue to work on this project, I will futher improve the performance of the tree search.


Cloud Explorer

jsnode.jsexpressreact

A web server that publicly exposes local directories. The server can be password-protected, and manages authentication using a JSON web token. I came up with this project as a solution to my own problem, where I wanted to be able to access photos and videos on my home server when I am not at home. My future plans for this project involve being able to view photos and videos in the app (rather than just using the browser viewer) and using a proper server-side rendering solution (like Next.js) instead of reading and manipulating HTML files in Node.js.


arithmetic

haskell

An interpreter for an arithmetic language consisting of natural number addition and multiplication. I made this project to learn about parsing and evaluating a formal language. If I return to this project, I'll change the implementation to respect the order of operations.


AngularChat

tsangularbootstrap

An instant messaging interface that can be customized to work with your own backend. The interface supports conversation badges (ex. "Unread"), text beneath messages (ex. "Seen"), pagination, and image messages. Additionally, the interface is responsive and intuitive on both desktop and mobile devices. My goal for this project was to learn Angular and Bootstrap. If I return to this project, I'll improve how the interface requests updates so that the client can have more information about what needs to be updated and make fewer requests to the backend.
