[TODO] Game tool framework

Postby Pseudonym » Wed Sep 25, 2013 3:57 am

We require a framework for writing game-creation tools.

We have a plan, based on the Insomniac LunaServer approach. The details and discussion are all over on another thread.

This is, I believe, in progress.

As I mentioned on that other thread, I am getting this going with Java. Java makes it easy* to distribute as a .jar with an embedded server. Here's the plan:

  • Maven to manage the project
  • Grizzly as the web container
  • Jersey for REST
  • MongoDB for the database
  • Jackson for handling JSON (comes with Jersey, turns out)
  • Swagger for API documentation

I wrote up a 0th draft of the RESTful API that I had in mind. Please give feedback! If we can decide on an API before the server code is done, people can start making editors right away.

* "easy" once you get your environment set up properly, which took way too long.
