August 15th, 2018 was the 40th anniversary of the Telidon graphics format, created in 1978. The Telidon hardware was discontinued in 1985, but a variant of the format, NAPLPS, thrived and remained in wide use throughout the BBS era, until the early 1990s. From 1982–1985, members of the Toronto arts org InterAccess used Telidon systems to produce an ambitious series of interactive BBS-based artworks in the format.

TelidonP5.js allows NAPLPS vector graphics files to be displayed in a browser using p5.js. Its companion decoder library naplps.js can also be used independently.
