wwwBASIC is an implementation of BASIC (Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) designed to be easy to run on the Web.
How to use wwwBASIC
You can include wwwBASIC directly in Web pages:
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <script src="https://google.github.io/wwwbasic/wwwbasic.js"></script> <script type="text/basic"> PRINT "Hello World!" FOR i = 1 to 10 PRINT "Counting "; i NEXT i </script> </head> </html>
You can also import wwwBASIC as a Node.js module.
Either install it via npm:
npm install -S wwwbasic
or clone the repository:
git clone https://github.com/google/wwwbasic.git
Then run your code:
var basic = require('wwwbasic'); // from NPM // var basic = require('./wwwbasic.js'); // from within the cloned repository directory basic.Basic( ` PRINT "Hello World!" FOR i = 1 to 10 PRINT "Counting "; i NEXT i `);
It supports a range of features including:
- Graphics: 24-bit color, PSET, LINE, CIRCLE.
- Input: INKEY$, GETMOUSE.
