The official Phaser + Parcel Template, a new tool for web and game developers, is now available. This template combines Phaser 3, a popular HTML5 game framework, with Parcel, a web application bundler known for its speed.

Updated to work with Phaser 3.70.0 and Parcel 2.11, the template simplifies the development process, supporting features like hot-reloading, which allows developers to see changes instantly without refreshing the browser manually.

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 + Parcel 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.
