Libraries: Integrations

Libraries: Plugins

Plugin has additional .js file, so to use it, you need to do extra work. Before deploying of your project on WASM, you could look at your dependencies using cargo tree and if you find these crates, add .js file from them.

  • sapp-jsutils - to build plugins. If you want to send/receive string or arbitrary object to JS, you should look at this.
  • quad-snd - to play sound.
  • quad-net - to use network.
