Shopkeepr makes it easy for you to add merchants/stores/shopkeepers to your JavaScript game.

NPM version Known Vulnerabilities npm NPM downloads issues license Gitter

Table of Contents

Overview

Shopkeepr is used to create and manage virtual shops within your JavaScript game. Support for sub-inventories, two pricing models, and sell/buy functionality make it a one stop for all shop/reward centers for your game.

Every shop in your game should be a new instance of a Shopkeepr. In every new instance of Shopkeepr, you have a main inventory and within this main inventory you can create as many unique sub-inventories as you want in order to better filter and categorize your items.

Installation

To install shopkeepr you can use:

$ npm install shopkeepr

and then to reference in your project:

// Node
const Shopkeepr = require('shopkeepr');
 
// Webpack
import Shopkeepr from 'shopkeepr';
 
// Browser Import
import shopShopkeeprkeepr from 'node_modules/shopkeepr/shopkeepr.js';

Initialization

To create a new shop, simply create a new instance of Shopkeepr with the name of the shop.

const runeShop = new Shopkeepr('Rune Shop');

Here are all of the initialization options available:

param type description default
name string The name of this shop.
options Object
options.currency Array Defines the currencies used in this shop ['gold']
options.initialGold Array The amount of gold this shop starts out with [100]

In regards to currency and startingMoney, they are both defined as arrays and they should have the same length. For example, if you set a three tier currency system using ['gold', 'silver', 'copper'] you should set the startingMoney in the same order. So if you wanted to have 1 gold, 5 silver, and 10 copper you would set startingMoney to [1, 5, 7].

const options = {
  currency: ['gold', 'silver', 'copper'],
  startingMoney: [1, 50, 70]
};
 
const shop = new Shopkeepr('General Store', options);
