MineTest Browser

by realtechnerd » Thu Jul 26, 2018 14:33

Hello, MineTest admin. I want to suggest a feature, where you could make a browser version of MineTest.
I know how to make a C++ wrapper that can be put in HTML. I am experienced.

Thanks, realtechnerd.

Technology, forever.

This will never be added as it is not a needed feature. I suggest trying to port minetest yourself and maintaining a fork with the relevant changes

What a sweet idea! I'd be all for helping to make this happen. There's already a node.js framework for building Web-based voxel games, and it's entirely open source:


And here's a proof of concept: http://voxelmetaverse.com/

It probably isn't realistic to port Minetest as a standalone app (for obvious reasons), but I'm sure that even a "Lite" version that could only connect to servers would be entirely doable since there is significantly less logic for the client to handle in multiplayer mode.

Maybe it's possible to compile Minetest to WebAssembly (wasm) and include that to a website?
