I am evaluating animate as a potential tool for making our online games / puzzles. So I should say I dont know much about animate yet.
There's no specific APIs for data storage in Animate.
The code written in HTML5 documents is pure JS + the CreateJS API to handle graphics and animations created in the IDE that are exported without compilation/transpilation.
Thanks for your help. Everything you said there is new to me! So I'm guessing a bit what that all means! Is what you are describing here relatively easy for a technical person, without being an expert in coding? I assume that JS session storage is a server side module running on a webserver (all servers?). If it kind of works OOTB with just some API commands like, please save this session state, then it sounds good.
If it requires lines of debugged code to get one button to retain its state, then I think I will be unable to do it on my own.
Update - sorry just looked at JS Session Storage. I see it's client side, like a turbo cookie.
Have you any experience with BaaS saving states for Animate project? Would that be easy to get going with?
