Many people did fractals renderers in Javasript in 256 bytes, but no one ever made one that zooms and rotate... until today.
Exactly 256 bytes.
And here is a slightly beautified version of the render loop
Not much magic going here. It is rather straight forward implementation of a
Mandelbrot fractal renderer with zoom and rotation of the viewport.
Many bytes were
wasted to make sure this effect works cross browser.
The one trick I like here and reused many times was to have one line with some kind credits that also serves as a look up table to render the frames.
