The “Tea Generator” is one of Milton Bayer’s most popular links. It’s a microsite which allows users to input the names of their friends/colleagues and the spinner randomises whose turn it is to make everyone a round of tea.
The site was previously built in Flash, and as such was not compatible with mobile devices. I was tasked with rebuilding it in HTML5 Canvas, to make it usable on mobile, and also extended it to include two new variations - a “Beer Generator”, a “Generic Generator”, and a seasonal “Christmas Generator”. Both the Generic and Christmas generators allow users to input any task they like before spinning to see who has to do it.
