When we have seen great works, we have always wondered about the tools and processes that were used to bring it about. We thought we'd share the key tools and resources that we use to make our games possible.
We have built our site using Elm, an amazing client-side architecture and language for web development. Every web developer should give Elm a look-see.
Our HTML/CSS library is an Elm package called elm-ui. elm-ui abstracts html and css into configurable elements making defining your site's look and feel a pleasure. Don't worry, you can always fall back to Elm's HTML and CSS packages when you need to.
Not only have we built our site using Elm and elm-ui, but we have structured it all using an amazing, statically typed site generator that generates an optimized Elm progressive web app.
Our favorite public domain (CC0) images resource.
Our favorite resource for SVG graphics.
Our code editor of choice. Just keeps getting better.
Our cost effective, full-featured graphics and photo editing applications.
Our favorite game prototyping service.
Our preferred integration and deployment platform.
When it doesn't make sense to deploy with Netlify, we use Digital Ocean for all our cloud computing needs.
