Phaser ES6 Boilerplate
This is a non-professional Phaser template for building standard games using the Phaser framework and ES6/2015.
The original idea was to create a small project that contained a robust gulpfile, a basic example and some kind of folder structure.
Codepen example: http://codepen.io/belohlavek/full/aORJVL
✔ Heavily commented, flexible Gulpfile (that means it uses Gulp).
✔ Example: Extending Phaser & modular development.
✔ Did I say ES6? Well.. some ES7 too! (See Experimental features).
ES6 is the future!
Anyways, I've been using ES6 for a while in other personal projects, and I currently prefer it over ES5 and Typescript. I found the new Class-based syntax to be a better fit for my developer needs. Unfortunately, the best way to access all the features of the new standard is by using a transpiler. This boilerplate is an attempt to reduce the time spent configurating a project and installing dependencies by providing a template that can work as an scaffold for any Phaser game.
You need Node.js and npm. You should also have git installed, but it's not mandatory.
Clone the repository (or download the ZIP file)
git clone https://github.com/belohlavek/phaser-es6-boilerplate.git
Run a development build...
...or a production build.
npm run production
Development builds will copy
phaser.min.js together with
Your ES6 code will be transpiled into ES5 and concatenated into a single file.
A sourcemap for your code will also be included (by default
Production builds will only copy
phaser.min.js. Your ES6 code will be transpiled and
minified using UglifyJS.
Any modification to the files inside the
./static folder will trigger a full page reload.
If you modify the contents of other files, please manually restart the server.
- Faster builds (no need to copy static files every time).
- Live reload now works with static files too!
Please report any bugs or add requests on Github Issues.
