Add support to javscript


#1

That.


#2

People would like to have support of their favourite programming language because they think it will significantly speed up the process of learning new game engine, but programming language is not important, it is the engine API what takes time to learn and master. Lua is beautiful and consise programming language to write game logic, and a lot faster to to learn than JavaScript. Don’t be scare to invest time to learn it :wink:

I can remember someone make something to support typescript in Defold…


#4

I’m sorry to disappoint, but it is very unlikely that we would add support for more languages. You write game logic using Lua and you extend the engine using native code.


#5

You probably can try to transpile js to lua, though I’m sure it’s not worth it and @paxer is right here.
