Submitted by ofTheo

May 3, 2022

Request Details
openFrameworks is a cross platform creative coding toolkit which has been used internally by Google Creative Lab over the last decade. It was used for Project Soli ( Radar ) and other product demos.  openFrameworks supports Android as well as Web, macOS, Windows, Linux, Raspberry Pi and iOS targets and it is widely used by the creative community.  

openFrameworks has recently joined Open Collective to raise money to cover development and infrastructure costs and make the project more sustainable over the long term.  

A grant from Google would allow us to better support new standards and roll out faster releases. 

Thanks so much!
Theo and the openframeworks team
