A browser-based particle visualization platform
Firefly is an interactive particle viewer that was designed for FIRE data but then extended to be used for any particle-based data, written in WebGL using the three.js library. A live version is available here. This package should not be confused with the serendipitously named web-based visualization software Firefly, from Caltech-IPAC, a general tool for retrieving and viewing astronomy data.
If you use Firefly, please cite us using the ADS listing that points to our Astrophysics Source Code Library (ASCL) entry.
