    Usage

    See the examples directory for working examples.

    Standalone

    HTML File loads GameJs and sets the main module:

    <script src="./public/gamejs.min.js"></script>
    <script>
        require.setModuleRoot('./javascript/');
        require.run('main')
    </script>
    

    The main module javascript/main.js starts the application:

    var gamejs = require('gamejs');
    gamejs.ready(function() {
        var display = gamejs.display.getSurface();
        ...
    });
    

    GameJs as a CommonJs package with browserify

    GameJs is a CommonJs package published on NPM. To use it with browserify install the GameJs package in your game's directory:

    $ npm install gamejs
    

    And install browserify, if you don't already have it.

    $ npm install -g browserify
    

    You can then bundle your application ("main.js") with all its dependencies - including GameJs - like so:

    $ browserify ./main.js --out bundled.js

    Example application can be found in the examples/ directory.

    Development - How to build

    GameJs consists of CommonJs modules in ./src/ which we build and jshint with grunt. If you don't already have node and npm, install those. You will also need java on your path for building the distribution file.

    Install then grunt commandline interface:

    $ npm install -g grunt-cli
    

    In the GameJs folder you cloned, install the dependencies to build using npm:

    $ npm install
    

    Build GameJs:

    $ grunt
    

    This will create the gamejs-VERSION.js file and a minified gamejs-VERSION.min.js which you can use standalone in the browser, as demonstrated in the examples.

    install

    npm i gamejs
