New Phaser + ESBuild Template streamlines Game Development
The official Phaser + ESBuild Template, a new tool for web and game developers, is now available. This template combines Phaser 3, a popular HTML5 game framework, with ESBuild, one of the fastest and most flexibile application bundlers available.
Updated to work with Phaser 3.70.0 and ESBuild 0.19+, the template simplifies the development process, supporting features like instant-rebuilding, allows triggers an automatic rebuild of the app from simply refreshing the browser.
Getting started is straightforward. With Node.js installed, developers can use commands like
npm run dev to launch a development server. The server runs locally, providing a simple and efficient development environment.
The template isn't just for development; it's also geared towards making the build process easier. The
npm run build command helps create production-ready builds, streamlining the transition from development to deployment.
For game developers looking for a more efficient way to work, the Phaser + ESBuild Template offers a practical solution. It's a useful tool for both experienced developers and those new to game development, making the process more manageable and less time-consuming.
This is one of the first official Phaser templates and more will be provided in the coming weeks, covering a wide range of popular bundlers and frameworks.
