# RpgClient

# RpgClient Entry Point

You need to create a class that inherits RpgClientEngine

import { entryPoint } from '@rpgjs/client'
import modules from './to/path/modules'
import io from 'socket.io-client'

document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', () => { 
    entryPoint(modules, { io }).start()
})
  1. Use entryPoint to create an instance of RpgClientEngine.
  2. Be sure to start the client part when the DOM is loaded.

# io

  • Property: io
  • Type: SocketIO or other
  • Optional: false
  • Usage:

Represents socket io client but you can put something else (which is the same schema as socket io)


# canvas

  • Property: canvas

  • {boolean} [options.antialias=false] - sets antialias
  • {number} [options.resolution=1] - The resolution / device pixel ratio of the renderer. The resolution of the renderer retina would be 2.
  • {boolean} [options.preserveDrawingBuffer=false] - enables drawing buffer preservation, enable this if you need to call toDataUrl on the webgl context.
  • {boolean} [options.clearBeforeRender=true] - This sets if the renderer will clear the canvas or not before the new render pass.
  • {number} [options.backgroundColor=0x000000] - The background color of the rendered area (shown if not transparent).
