requestAnimationFrame helper


A simple script with a few niceties that allows for multiple requestAnimationFrame calls, and FPS pinning.

How it works

The script polyfills rAF if required, then overloads requestAnimationFrame and cancelAnimationFrame with a process that allows multiple frames to be queued up for rAF to run.

This is useful if there are multiple animations running on the page, you want all the callbacks to happen at once, and not on multiple rAF calls. This script is meant as a drop-in solution to that problem.

Setting up Cmder to use bash by default

Set up cmder to use msysgit / bash by default

  • Install cmder_mini (msysgit is already installed, so no need for full version)
  • In Cmder, open settings: Win + Alt + P
  • Under Startup > Tasks, add a task called {bash} with the following settings:
    • Task parameters (set icon):
      • For Cmder icon: /icon "%CMDER_ROOT%\cmder.exe"
      • For Git icon: /icon "C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\etc\git.ico"
    • Commands (open Git's bash shell):
      • "C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\sh.exe" -l -new_console:d:%USERPROFILE%
You can’t perform that action at this time.
