Why would you use Javascript for a game? It's designed for modifying DOM elements on webpages.


I thought that too, when I first learned it that's what I was under the impression of it. But I haven't done anything JS related in about 4 years and when I looked at my friend's games who took said classes earlier than me I was impressed you can do things like this in JS. THe one I like best was the assignment where they had to remake snake into their own game with similar concept.

In recent times with JS engines becoming much more efficient(V8 in Chrome being a good example) and HTML5 spiking in popularity, JavaScript is essentially overtaking Flash and handling it... surprisingly beautifully. If you want an example of amazingness pulled off using JavaScript, there are a couple projects you should look at.

http://bellard.org/jslinux/ - JavaScript emulating a tiny Linux computer
https://archive.org/details/softwarelibrary_msdos_games/v2 - JavaScript running DOS games
http://asmjs.org/faq.html - Just utterly interesting


Wow thats an amazing use of Javascript. Didn't think it could do that much and I keep making more and more complex stuff with JS

Well I guess this XKCD is about true now:



something.js

Javascript runs at glacial speed, even in v8. I was working on a voip project using WAMP, but v8 couldn't deserialize JSON fast enough to prevent skips in audio(though i could try msgpack).

Not sure if MATLAB counts, but that, since it's relatively simple to use for what I need to do.

Don't like LabVIEW. Programming with flowcharts is eww, especially when something as simple as adding a few numbers is made extremely complicated.

Otherwise, I'm mostly familiar with C, since if MATLAB's computation is too slow, I often need to do a low level language anyway and C is the best compromise between readability and speed. But I suppose I'll need to learn to use FORTRAN one day.

Compared to CSS it runs slowly. However I've found more often than not Javascript runs slowly because people coded it badly or they coded it using the least efficient way possible and looks like it was designed for another language. I just made a program for work that can sort thousands of rows of data alphabetically, ascending or descending, and according to the users language within a second.

When I used to code Javascript like PHP it ran slowly for me too. Now I have a better idea of how I should go about coding it and it runs SOOOOOO much faster.
