Chances for HTML5 compile (enables Wii U and Switch?)

Post by Bugala » Sat Jan 14, 2017 11:49 am

I was checking Nintendos development guides and there is an option for WII U that you can make games using HTML5.

I have never actually tried Clickteam Fusion, but to my understanding it is somewhat similar to Hollywood, both being LUA based i think, and it has HTML5 support. Hence I am wondering is it how difficult and possible that there would be coming HTML5 support for Hollywood too, since that could mean possibility to use Hollywood for making games to Wii U and probably Nintendo Switch as well.

That's not very likely because Hollywood is written in C which is pretty much the antithesis to HTML5 :)

Emscripten can do it.

Well, but this isn't really usable for closed source software like Hollywood. Of course, the JavaScript code could be obfuscated but still, the sources would be open.
