Minie project website

I’ve created a website for the Minie project and begun moving documentation out of the repo’s README file and into the new site.

It’s a work in progress, of course, but I welcome suggestions and feedback.

I customized the UI bundle (favicon, header, and copyright notice) so the site no longer appears to be part of JMonkeyEngine.

I also fixed the issue with Java keywords being hard to read in Dark Mode.

Wow, thanks, and I was just about to get to that tonight :wink:

Study my solution, if you wish, but I’m a total noob at CSS, so I bet you can do a better job.

I completed a first draft of the “Introduction to Rigid-body Physics” tutorial:
https://stephengold.github.io/Minie/minie/minie-library-tutorials/rigidbody.html

Please take a look. Suggestions and feedback would be appreciated.

That looks great @sgold!

The only thing I would add is the table on the wiki that shows the difference between ridged, static, and kinetic bodies. The one that has things like how to place each on in the world, how to move them, if they have mass or not, etc. That table is like my life line when working with ridged bodies.

Will do. Thanks!

Edit: I’ve added a “Summary” section with a version of the rigid/kinematic/static table.

Great tutorial! Ironically, I just spent quite a bit of time studying it before I saw this post. Very helpful!

Have you tried to study the simulation of rigid body breaking? :smiley:

I can’t say I’ve studied it, but I’ve simulated a few simple cases using Minie. Every constraint in Minie has a “breaking impulse threshold” you can set.

OK, “Light” it is. By one vote!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the poll.
