suggestion - add a "unity like" preview pane

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Jul 06, 2016 12:07 pm

Couldn't find a "C2 suggestions" sub-forum, so I'll write it here :)

It could be cool if you press the "play" button, it will open a chromium embedded browser inside construct in debug mode, where you can preview without leaving construct :)

It could act just like a normal browser (port 50000), so remote devices can check as well.

That's basically what Nwjs is.

I was thinking about pressing play, and the work area is replaced by a built in browser. or in a different pane so that you can preview and work at the same time.

Can you please elaborate? you simply create a new nwjs pointing to localhost:50000 as its entry point?

I set my preview browser to nwjs so it just pops open its own little window that i can put beside c2 and refer to both at once. It's less cumbersome than having it launch in a browser tab.
