The Tea Generator

View Site

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.

Cookies are used to save a user’s list, so they can continue to come back and use the site daily without having to re-input player’s names.
