Dipping my toe in the water

For developers using the Construct 2 Javascript SDK

Post » Mon Mar 05, 2018 4:43 am

Hello everyone!

I have hit a roadblock in the development of an iPad-focused application and would like to learn how to convert an .js module (with a free use license) so that I can complete my idea. But before I go hopping down this rabbit hole, is that something that only works with NW.js?

I have been working through intro javascript tutorials and node.js tutorials and can't wait to get moving on learning this stuff. Regardless of whether I can use modules in mobile exports, does anyone have forums or tutorials they find useful that might help me develop this new skill? Are there particular techniques I should focus on? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance; I appreciate how supportive the Scirra community is!

EDIT: P.S I know that the browser object can run javascript as well, so maybe it's better to figure out how to run scripts from the module and return a value? Is that possible or would t still require changing things around?

The addon exchange may be useful for you also, especially the following addon:

If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

The SDK works on all platforms. Start with the C2 SDK documentation.
