Game cloud is a good experience to learn several web technologies:

  • HTML5
  • Javascript
  • AJAX
  • CSS
  • WebGL
  • MediaWiki syntax

How to develop the game engine Edit

Online programming Edit

  1. Get logged,
  2. In the Gadgets tab of your preferences, check Developer mode and save,
  3. Copy the content of MediaWiki:Common.js,
  4. If you use the New wikia look skin (default), paste it in Special:Mypage/wikia.js,
  5. If you use the Monobook skin, paste it in Special:Mypage/monobook.js,
  6. Click here to purge the server,
  7. Restart your web navigator to purge your client,

Now you can edit Special:Mypage/wikia.js or Special:Mypage/monobook.js ;) Your changes will only take effect for you. You can then suggest your contributions to a sysop (mechanism will be improved in the future). For example, Clue70 has already created their own version here and here.

Offline programming Edit

  1. Download the following file as an HTML file,
  2. Run this file in your web navigator,
  3. To edit the code, download the imported files of the page and make the href links local,

Now you can edit the source code on your hard disk. Try not to edit the HTML file as this file is not used on the site so that it would not be possible to merge your contributions.
