Today’s genuary prompt was code for an hour, so I just used it as a motivation to add filled triangles to Claudius, my OCaml library for retro console shenanigans.

It didn’t take an hour, but I needed the promise that I’d be done with the dull bit in less than that time - even font rendering got added before this as I though that was more interesting!

In addition to the initial test animation, I then needed something with more triangles to draw, and give a person of a certain time and upbringing the need to test triangle rendering, and the results are somewhat predictable.

A screenshot of a square window titled 'Dark Side Of The Moon', in which is drawn the iconic Pink Floyd album cover of light striking a triangular prism and a rainbow appearing out the other side.
