Joey P's Path Finder


1. Enter a grid size and click "Create Grid" (Recommended Sizes are 50-100)

2. You can fill the grid easily by clicking "Fill Grid," you can keep clicking until you find a pattern you like.

3. Place the start point by hovering over a grid block and typing "S"

4. Place the end point by typing "E" and watch it find the shortest path right before your eyes!

After it renders the shortest path, you can keep moving the "E" point again and it will recalculate the new route

Have fun and enjoy!


A path finding JavaScript program which utilizes the A* Algorithm to calculate the shortest path. The program also uses the same A* Algorithm to generate its own complex maps for traversal demonstration. I wrote the program in mind to be easily integrated into other apps for point and click behavior with collision avoidance.
