Fake Code

April 21st, 2020

Here’s a fun little idea from Knut Synstad. You give it the URL of a GitHub Gist and it converts the Gist into grayscale rounded blobs (SVG) that sorta look like code if you squint. Maybe fun for interesting dynamic backgrounds or for whatever you might use code-looking stock art for.

SVG blobs that look like code.

It reminded me of Christian Naths’s Redacted font, which turns every glyph into a box or squiggles.

And if you need some actual totally fake code, Harry Parton’s Pen is nice for that:
