With the new version of HTML, it’s easier for us, Web developers, to build amazing Web applications, and games. Even with the great features of HTML5, there are some things that could be simplified to help us create games, and it’s where CreateJS become handy. CreateJS is a suite of libraries, and tools which work together or independently to help you create rich interactive content with HTML5. The suite contains EaselJS, TweenJS, SoundJS, PreloadJS, and for now, only one tool named Zoë is available.
Developing for the Web also means that your application or game needs to run well in all the major browsers. Even if all vendors are doing an amazing job to get an equal support for HTML5, and CSS3, it’s not always easy to do some tasks, like adding sounds. I think good music, and sound effects are critical for a great experience in your game, but you probably don’t want to take all our time doing it: this library will help you with query capabilities, then to specify and prioritize what APIs, plugins, and features are leveraged for specific devices or browsers.
One of thing that I like about CreateJS, is that you can grab or fork the code on their GitHub repository, and you can also use their CDN (Content Delivery Network) so you won’t have to deal with files by yourself. Did you already know CreateJS? Are you using it (show us what you did!)? Do you plan to use it? Will you join us for our CreateJS hackathons? Share your thoughts!
