Here's a possible starting point in your research:


My next step would be to find an ob-<lang>.el that is as similar
as possible to what Processing does and what I'd want to achieve
and go from there. The link above mentions ob-template.el which
might be a good beginning too.

It's probably best to leave animations for last, but if the animation
can be stored in a file, then having a link that will play the file
seems like an easy thing to do.

All this is untainted by any knowledge of Processing, let alone any kind
of hands-on testing or actual practice, so treat it with the appropriate
size grain (boulder?) of salt.
