HTML5 games workshop

A workshop that teaches how to develop HTML5 games with JavaScript and Phaser.

It is meant to last a full day, although it includes sufficient guiding for people to finish it at home if only a short session with a coach is possible.

Access the workshop online here.

If you want to tinker around or have your own version…

This project uses Metalsmith to generate a static website out of Markdown files (among others).

Build the project

npm install
node index.js

It will generate a dist folder with the website for the workshop generated. It's all static files.


There is a watch mode that will recompile the project whenever a markdown file has been changed:

npm run watch

Publish to Github Pages

npm run deploy

This assumes that your repository is named html5-games-workshop. If not, you will need to update package.json and change:

"build:ghpages": "node index.js --base \"/html5-games-workshop\"",

…to use your repository name as --base parameter.
