introducing iio.js!




Demos: iio.js.org#demos


Tutorials: iioinc.com/tutorials


iio.js is an open source JavaScript framework that makes it super easy to make 2D games and animations with HTML5 Canvas. It isn't exactly new, its actually the newest, and rechristened, version of iio Engine, which I released about 2 years ago.


How easy is it? Here's "Hello World":
app.create( app.center, 'Hello iio' );
Just because its simple though, doesn't mean it isn't useful for complex apps. iio.js is dependency free, does not limit standard JS usage or conflict with any other libraries, and it also integrates directly with Box2D. Checkout this drag and drop demo for example: Box2D Demo
Though no mobile specific functionality is included, iio.js has been used to make iOS and Android games, here's one made pretty recently: iio.js mobile game
There's also full online documentation, which can be downloaded for offline use on Github
Check it out and let me know what you think! I've been working on this library off and on for almost 3 years now, with help from 6 other developers, and feel that this version is something special.
It even has a feature which I don't think exists anywhere else: text editing on a Canvas
I'll be continuing to work on it - my next focus is better iOS and Android integration - and releasing new demos and tutorials whenever I can. Follow the project on Twitter to hear about new content! [twitter]iioinc[/twitter]
