Abstract

Phad is a live coding environment built for web browsers. Phad strives for minimal syntax, with the purpose of achieving both readability and simplicity targeted to users with no programming or music experience. It is built around the modification of notes and instruments, and the combination of both. The Phad environment was built with the user in mind, offering tutorials, exercises, a playground, and collaborative performance. Users are able to login with a Google Account and save code to our database, making it easy to come back to previous work, or to see what other users have created. The language and system design of Phad was inspired by previous live-coding environments, and was improved iteratively with external feedback as well as our experience at the Algorave.
