For UK readers of a certain age, you’re almost certainly thinking of a small, brown plasticine man from a BBC cartoon series when seeing the word “Morph”. Charmingly, the team also note this in a detailed Medium post of how Morph was built (it’s all front-end JS).
To try it out for yourself, simply go to the Morph website and follow the “Get started” link. There’s also a link to the code on GitHub, so you can wrangle with it as you wish.
