Fireworks Code

Inspired by this application of computer science, we have decide to create our own firework display using a Python script.

For this challenge we are using the processing library which is used to draw on the screen and to refresh the screen based on a frame rate. This is what we need to create our fireworks animation, based on a 24 frames per second.

Your task:

Analyse the code above. Change some of the parameters to see the impact on the aimation. Customise your fireworks further based on your preferences.

Interactive Fireworks
