Popcorn Maker

Popcorn Maker is a creative tool that makes authoring interactive media pages as easy as point and click.

Coming November 2012

Popcorn Maker 1.0 will empower you to make cool web-based media, whether you’re a beginner or pro. With over 20 plugins—ranging from Twitter to Google Maps to video processing—you’ll be able to stitch up a stylish video that’s woven into the web. And, of course, it’s 100% free and open source.

Popcorn Maker brings the power of popcorn.js and its plugin system to a graphical user interface, with familiar timeline controls. Completely free and open source, Popcorn Maker offers a collection of useful templates, but since it’s built from standard HTML, you can customize it to your heart’s content.

You’ll  be able to publish and share your creations on  your blog, Twitter, or Tumblr (or just grab the code).

Help us test the app

Under active development, Popcorn Maker is alpha software. Give it a spin, and let us know if you find any bugs (you will!).

Contribute to Popcorn

See a guide on how to contribute to Popcorn Maker.

To create Popcorn Maker, we developed Butter - a software development kit for HTML5-based timeline media apps. If youʼd like to build upon Popcorn Maker, you can get started now by forking it on Github.
