  • Clojure for mobile app ?
    reddit.com/r/Clojure | 2021-09-29
    Nobody mentioned the web-first alternative. Building your app with ClojureScript in the browser and then turning it into a native mobile app with Cordova. I've done this successfully with PO LoopSync and Melody Generator and it works very well. Let me know if you want more info about this approach!
  • Building a Roguelike Game with TypeScript

    Phaser has its caveats, but it has a lot of tutorials. In fact, most stuff I've implemented, I used their tutorial examples as a template. Their API documentation is a bit fuzzy and not everything will be on the first page you hit. After dwelling through GitHub, I forked a nice Cordova Phaser Template with Typescript which has some cool feature out of the box, mainly a BGM player (with Howler.js), Firebase integration and mobile platform support with Cordova on top of a webpack config with a dev server, and of course, Typescript support.
  • New Rogue Company companion app is released
    It's built with Quasar Framework, Vue.js, TypeScript and Cordova. If you are new to software development it takes a little time to pick up the basics but these are all popular tools so there are excellent documentation and tutorials for free all across the internet.

  • How to turn my code into an app.

    If you want it to be installable as a "native" mobile app, look at Apache Cordova, which - like Electron, but for mobile - takes your web app, wraps it in a native Android or iOS wrapper, exposes a bunch of additional APIs to Javascript to allow you to interact with phone hardware features, and allows you to compile your app as a "native" Android or iOS app that can be sideloaded or distributed through the platform's app-store.

    Writing JavaScript for the server-side is possible, also writing JavaScript for mobile applications and desktop applications is also possible. Apache Cordova is a free mobile application development framework that allows you to develop an application in HTML/JavaScript and then it wraps it into a native container that can access the device functions of several platforms and hence enables the web app to work on mobile devices. Electron is a free and open-source framework for creating native desktop applications with web technologies. It allows building cross-platform desktop apps with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. There are other examples of such development frameworks that exist like Ionic and NativeScript.

  • How I significantly improved Giganotes app performance using Rust
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-03-09
    GigaNotes is a a cross platform note taking application. It is written using Angular framework and was previously relying on some Electron / Cordova bindings for SQLITE, depending on the operating system it was build for. As the whole application code was written in Javascript, it had a lot of annoying performance issues because of single-threaded nature of Javascript engines. This was especially noticeable during the execution of heavy operations like synchronization of large set of notes. The recent technologies aiming to help developing multi-threaded JavaScript applications have been introduced recently, but still have a lot of limitations. Besides, the overall javascript performance is not goog enough for writing application's core. However, JavaScript is still pretty good for writing user interfaces of cross-platform applications, so I didn't consider to fully abandon it. As it said, each tool is good for its own purposes.
  • Most straightforward way to publish a 3js game (for non-developers)?
    reddit.com/r/threejs | 2021-02-14
    You can do the same thing with Cordova (what the original PhoneGap became)... it does take a bit of fiddling around but can output your apk version of the game. The docs on the site https://cordova.apache.org/ are a bit dry but functionally complete.
