Improvements: migrating to uploadcare and other news.
The benefit of this approach is:
- less stress for the hosting server (at least with jekyll and imagemagick)
- the github repository will be lighter, because you will not store anymore any images.
I will use this service also for my other website, but, for this, i slowly migrating to a “Gatsbyjs” system. Gatsby.js is an plugin ecosystem based primarly on React. I am learning both, but it seems very promising. The main characteristic of React is the use of Virtual DOM and the Component architecture. I will inform you of my progress…
In these days i spent also my time to improve the Jsartoolkit5 library. I would add the NFT ( Natural Feature Tracking ) , that is a markerless approach for the augmented reality applications. To be honest there is already a NFT branch but the problem is the slow performances in fps terms and the fact that it is very old: it require an update.
For now i solved some problems while compiling the lib; the next step will be to find the bottlenecks of the code ( i think it will be not so easy), I hope to solve this, it will be very interesting developing some apps with a markerless approach.
From this point of view i am working on some collage art with markers and augmented reality thanks to AR.js library. It is the same approach that i used to make “Art is a joke” the acrylic painting showed in this page.
I also start to build some Markerless app and artworks based on the ArtoolkitX library for Android., until NFT will not available in jsartoolkit5 and AR.js.
