Kilma Basita

I thought of this exercise in SVG programming after coming across Miami’s Code/Art web site and the world of P5.js the other day.

Kilma basita in Egyptian Arabic means literally a small word, as in a brief conversation.

The  function of this SVG app is to serve as a study aid for memorizing words and their meaning.

In this version, all I do is demo how to create an index card that flips when hovered over with a mouse.

I plan to develop increasingly sophisticated versions of this simple program.

For example, I’m already noticing that it would be nice if the lines lettering and lines of the front of the card did not appear when the card is flipped.

So that is what I’m are going to attempt next.

You can try it yourself, by editing the Pen you see above.
