This is the introduction and tutorial to Swipe, an open-source, multi-media presentation language, which makes the creation of animated and media-rich contents ten-times easier than traditional programming (native or HTML5).
If you are one of creative people (designers, illustrators, animators, filmmakers, storytellers, ...) who wants to participate in this "app" innovations for smartphones and smart TVs, but don't have time to learn programming, Swipe is the answer for you.
Swipe is a very simple mark-up langauge for non-programmers, to create media-rich "contents" such as:
- Animated Children Books
- Animated/Interactive Comics
- Photo/Video Books
- Graphical/Sound Novels
- Media-rich Presentations
The specification of Swipe language is available at https://github.com/snakajima/swipe, and the source code of Swipe Engine for iOS & tvOS will become an open source in October 31st 2015. Have fun and be creative!
