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

Postby 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 :)

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.
