The first intention of building a VJing software that runs in browsers dates back to 2013 as the W3C started discussing WebMIDI implementation. The development of the first version of Visual Fiha begun in October 2016. That first version was based on the amazing AmpersandJS library, it supported live manipulation of THREE.js scenes, HTML5 canvas, SVG, HTML with CSS, integrated the P5 library as well and implemented the concept of signals.

Visual Fiha was first used for a live performance in December 2016 and a first workshop took place in May 2017 in Moscow.

It is in autumn 2017 that the decision was taken to attempt a complete rewrite and re-design with React.js and Redux.

The new version is hosted on GitLab because of the integrated CI/CD tools it offers.

After almost a year of free time development, there is still numerous bugs which need to be addressed but its state advanced enough give the users a good impression of what it should become.
