Following my Rad Lines release, I wanted to take up another simple mathematical approach to build infinite number of SVGs: drawing streamlines (aka “flow lines”) of mathematical formulas.
You can see my new open source tool called “Flow Lines” here: https://msurguy.github.io/flow-lines/
The tool’s features:
A while ago, I made a Codepen that allows anybody quickly make SVGs with formulas generated by a special “randomizer” inside the tool:

Now that I have built up a flexible UI library in the Rad Lines tool, I wanted to use it as an interface for customization of various parameters of the flow lines generated with the tool.
During the process of building of the new tool, I had to build a couple of new universal components: color picker and “favorites panel”. Those new components can now be used in my other projects.
Every creation that you make can be shared with anybody else by sharing the URL from the browser. Here are some examples of creations with unique URLs, you should see exactly the same output as mine:
This project quickly gained traction on ProductHunt and became #2 product of the day:
Enjoy and share with others!
