So I wrote a cute screensaver

A few months ago, I found a GIF of Kirby (or rather a bunch of Kirbys) dancing. I thought, This would be even cooler if it was set to music. So I set about writing a simple, little HTML5 screensaver.

In the Cinnamon Desktop for Linux Mint, you can write screensavers in HTML5 (technically, it uses Webkit, but we all know that’s a fancier version of KHTML). So I wrote this, chose some dance music, and had it play said dance music randomly every time the computer screen is locked.

If you wish to see a video of it in action, here it is:
