Croissant Hoops – GlimmerJS Game Demo
The team behind EmberJS has given us a new toy in the form of GlimmerJS. This new DOM rendering engine was released just a few months ago. Croissant Hoops is a prototype game created to explore this new web development technology.
EmberJS, as many of you know, is the popular open-source framework for creating single-page web apps. GlimmerJS uses the Ember CLI and promises to be one of the fastest DOM rendering engines. It provides a low-level pipeline that allows your code to run as fast as possible.
Croissant Hoops is a simple basketball game where you aim to shoot a tiny ball into a tiny basket. The basket moves to a different position every time you sink a ball. You’ll discover that scoring even a single point can be quite challenging. But at least you have a guiding arc to help you.
An interesting feature of the game is the Gravity slider. It allows to you increase or decrease gravity’s effect on the balls.
