For a more native experience, you can install the JS Paint desktop app. It works on Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Progressive Web App

JS Paint on a phone

Alternatively, you can install JS Paint as a PWA (Progressive Web App), but this does not yet support offline use (as it doesn't include a Service Worker). It's more like a bookmark (for now), except it runs in a special window.

The user interface for installing PWAs differs by browser and operating system.

On most desktop browsers, the install prompt is in the URL bar. On mobile, the install prompt is generally found in the menu of browser options. See Installing PWAs for visual guidance.

I also made a separate elaborate MS Paint clone that runs in the terminal, and edits ANSI art in addition to bitmaps.

You can install it with: pip install textual-paint

And then run with simply: textual-paint

Requires Python 3.10 or later, and a terminal emulator with Unicode and true color support.

Textual Paint was built using the Textual framework, which was very fun to work with!

I may have more Paint projects planned, the mad man that I am. 🎨

What's more retro than a terminal-based Paint program, I wonder?

I don't know where most of these came from, and I've repurposed some of them.
