I had been doing a little work with React, which is pretty good an very popular, and had recently read about Inferno, which is a lighter-weight, faster framework that's almost completely interchangeable with React. Sounded good, especially since I wanted high performance for something that's going to be doing thousands of floating-point matrix multiplies per second. (A hypercube in N dimensions has 2^N vertices, and a rotation matrix has N^2 entries -- do the math). (It turns out I really didn't have to worry -- Moore's Law over three decades gives a speedup by a factor of a million, give or take a few orders of magnitude, so even using an partially-interpreted language speed isn't a problem. Perhaps I'm showing my age.)

Anyway, let's get started:( cut tag added to protect your sanity )
