Arcadia + Game Center for Cordova
It’s been a slow couple of months. A bit of “real life” upheaval (in the form of having to find a new job) has prevented blog updates. I haven’t been completely idle during this time, though, and have been working on a few small projects, two of which I’ll detail here.
The first is a Game Center plugin for Apache Cordova. I wanted to learn how to write a Cordova plugin, and as far as I know, no one else has written a plugin for Game Center. I’m probably the only person who is stupid enough to write such a thing. It’s not a 100% complete implementation, but has support for leaderboards, achievements, and turn-based multiplayer games. To test the plugin out, I wrote a simple reversi game, which will allow users to play via asynchronous multiplayer. The game itself isn’t quite done (I hit a roadblock in that I only had one iOS device to test on), but I’m hoping to get back in and finish it soon.
As always, comments and suggestions are welcome. Keep programming!
