Tools for Live Coding
Made in NY
TidalCycles for Images in VLC Player, used in choreographic work. Made by Tom Murphy, used by Kate Sicchio.
The Force Website
Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Browser-based GLSL.
Made around the world
These are tools made by people we admire that take part in the global live-coding community.
Sonic PI (Ruby) Website
Sonic Pi is a tool to create music using Ruby.
TidalCycles (Haskell) Website

"Orca is an esoteric programming language, designed to create procedural sequencers in which each letter of the alphabet is an operation, where lowercase letters operate on bang, uppercase letters operate each frame." (GitHub)
Hydra is a "set of tools for livecoding networked visuals. Inspired by analog modular synthesizers, these tools are an exploration into using streaming over the web for routing video sources and outputs in realtime." (GitHub)
"Livecodelab is a special secret place where you can make fancy "on-the-fly" 3d visuals and play awesomely offbeat (literally) sounds. "On-the-fly" meaning: as you type. Type just three letters: "box", and boom! a box appears. No clicking play, no waiting, no nothing." (Website)
Visor (Ruby) Website
"Visor is a live coding environment for real-time visual performance. Visor bridges the gap between creative coding and VJing by offering user interfaces to easily interact with live coded Processing sketches." (Website)
