We have some really incredible news to share with you. Usually, we’d tell you about all the amazing updates that we’ve made to CocoonJS. But, this time it’s different. The new version of CocoonJS, 2.0, is live and it allows users to compile HTML5 apps! Starting today, current Phonegap users have a better and faster alternative!
In order to use it, all you have to do is select the new CocoonJS version in your project when you are ready to compile it inside the DevPortal. Please note that this version is still in beta so we will allow you to still use the previous 1.4.7 version of CocoonJS.
But, let’s explain a bit more about this new version. With CocoonJS 2.0 you can compile your project in the Canvas+ -our accelerated canvas, the best choice to accelerate your game-, or WebView+ -the Chromium-based WebView able to run DOM-based games and apps-. This is great because you can take advantage of each environment: Canvas+ to accelerate and WebView+ to dodge the fragmentation problems HTML5 app developers have when deploying to mobile using other technologies.
With this new step, it doesn’t matter what kind of HTML5 project you are working on: with Ludei’s CocoonJS you can deploy it cross-platform with no headaches because you don’t need to make code changes. Your app or game will work like a charm on all mobile devices and with the full native advantages. CocoonJS is moving the HTML5 development to the next level: finally, all HTML5 projects are first-class native citizens on mobile.
We’re super excited about this launch and happy to be able to offer our developers many other features:
- New launcher design
- Android remote debugging
- Bug fixes
- And much more… (take a look at the full change log on Help Center)
