Andreas posted a BankAccount and ATM tutorial. This nicely demonstrates some of the basic Tweak concepts such as fields, events, triggers, and handlers, as well as introducing UI aspects like players, costumes, updating etc.
A multi-player web app needs a backend, right? What if I told you, it doesn’t? Read on for how Croquet gets rid of servers. No, really . Instantaneous Shared Experiences is how we describe Croquet on our website. And while that excellently describes What Croquet does, as Croquet's Chief Architect, I wanted to share a bit about How we do that. So I wrote a Twitter thread . Here it is in blog form, slightly extended. Click the animation above if it does not play automatically Croquet lets you build completely client-side multi-user web apps. Read that again. Client-side. Multi-user. No I’m not kidding. I built it, I know it works. 😁 Croquet apps run completely client-side: can be hosted as a static web site no server-side code needed no networking code needed Croquet is literally virtualizing the server: Instead of running code on a server (or in a serverless function) we run it as a virtual machine (VM) on each client. Croquet carefully controls the inputs to these identi
However, neither of us is a native speaker, so we may well get convinced otherwise if you have a really good suggestion (beAwareOf: feels a bit awkward, too).
Telling an object to beware of a normal event doesn't make sense to me. The update of a field value is not an abnormal or unexpected or dangerous event. Perhaps you mean beware because there's a danger you will overlook implementing a handler for this event that you probably really want to handle. But thats really a warning to the programmer rather than a message to the object.
How about beReadyFor: or respondTo: or watchFor: or takeActionOn: or the more prosaic but typical registerEvent:.
Don't know if you'll like any of these. In my opinion there all better than the implications of danger in bewareOf:. From what I've read, both you and Andreas express yourselves in English very well but you might want to solicit more input from other native speakers on this. I'm American by the way.
