Word Hearts Updated

About five years ago I posted a simple little application called Word Hearts which lets you fill a heart shape with words. Last year it was the most visited page on my site despite the fact that it was still a java applet based application which many modern browsers won't render. I have updated this tool to use ProcessingJS so it runs well in modern browsers. There is also enhanced functionality like:

  • You can fill circles, diamonds, stars, and squares as well as the original heart shape
  • There are more fonts to choose from
  • You can easily use small symbols like hearts, happy faces etc., in your list of words
  • A nice color picker
  • Word orientation options
  • Vary the word colors so it looks more interesting
  • Save your image

Here are a couple of examples of what you can do:

Launch the interactive version of Word Hearts to try it out.

This was created with Processing JS and also uses the JSColor color picker and the JQuery Font Chooser. Thank you!
