HTML5 Games Development: Using Local Storage to Store Game Data

by Makzan | September 2011 | Beginner's Guides Open Source Web Graphics & Video

Local storage is a new specification from HTML5. It allows a website to store information in the browser locally and access the stored data later. This is a useful feature in game development because we can use it as a memory slot to save any game data locally in a web browser.

In this article by Makzan, author of HTML5 Games Development by Example - Beginner's Guide, we are going to add game data storing to a CSS3 memory matching game. Besides storing and loading the game data, we will also notify the player for breaking a record with a nice 3D ribbon with pure CSS3 styling. Specifically, we will cover the following topics:

  • Storing data by using HTML5 local storage
  • Saving the object in the local storage
  • Notifying players for breaking a new record with a nice ribbon effect
  • Saving the entire game progress

HTML, PHP, and Content Posting in Drupal 6

by David Mercer | February 2009 | Content Management Drupal Open Source

In the event that you can't find a suitable module to do a task for you, or simply want to create something yourself quickly, it's important to look at how to harness the power of HTML and PHP to get the job done.

If it's layout you are talking about, then HTML is the order of the day. Alternatively, if you want to create some dynamic content that can change depending on the state of your site, or respond to user interaction, then PHP is the way forward. More than likely, you will end up using a combination of both.

Unfortunately, we can't possibly hope to give you a comprehensive introduction into either technology in the space we have here (although we will look over HTML quickly in a moment). However, there are many online resources available to learn about HTML and PHP for free, and we will list a bunch of them throughout this article.

In this article by David Mercer, we will look at how to achieve some fairly useful tasks by way of demonstrating how to create an About us page that will contain links to other useful sites, pictures of the imaginary site team, as well as some dynamic content.
