Writing a Game in Typescript

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on dev.to

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • attacke

    Attacke! is a simple two-player fighting game

    Before we dig in further, I should clarify that most of my code snippets in this article are truncated to the relevant lines. The entire code can be found on GitHub.

  • collider2d

    A 2D collision checker for modern JavaScript games.

    That solution is clever, elegant, efficient, and — most importantly — way above my skill level in geometry. It's also the method that Collider2D uses to check for intersections between two objects. That's it! Collision Detection is a solved problem. I neither want nor need to deal with that, at least for now.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • FirebaseRTC

    Codelab for building a WebRTC Video chat application using Firebase Cloudstore.

    And now there's a game, fully written in typescript and rendered in a , even fluently on all major browsers, and packaged inside a PWA. My future plans for it include more themes, more players, and remote multiplayer support, as an excuse to learn some WebRTC.
