JavaScript Canvas Framework.

This is a game & ui library based on vanilla JS & CanvasInput only! The approach is to allow extendibility while adhering to concepts from popular engines like Unity. It's open source and free now and forever.

Another goal is to keep JSCF as independent library as possible and as cross-platform & backwards-compatible as possible.

Lastly, JSCF should be desktop AND mobile targeted, while keeping good performance.

Gettting JSCF

JSCF is in development. Only prototype version is available. You can get a prototype build from release/jscf.js.

jscf.js is a minified version. To work with non-compact code you need to manually include the core modules + needed modules & components. This helps loading only whatever is neccessary and helps us debug problems.
