question about webgl
Hi. is Esenthel good for webgl based games? I know for webgl the Javascript game engines are suitable, I've read this comment at slant.co about Esenthel webgl support:

CON:
Web support practically non-existing
Web support exists only on paper. The way it works is that Emscripten is used to convert an entire project to unreadable Javascript. That practically only works for very simple demos, no real-world projects.

is it true?

RE: question about webgl
Hi,

I have no idea. But I guess you should try it out and see by yourself.
It's really easy to set up esenthel and only takes a few minutes.

It also has "CON: Expensive", while esenthel is free and source is available on github

RE: question about webgl
The core idea behind hasn't changed tho. The code is converted via emscripten and it would make it unreadable. This is a 3rd party library and might need to look into that library and not so much the engine
the code spilled in JS i dont think you would need to read/manually change it.

Its best to try it yourself at the end of the day and see what works for you

As for the web support, since its a 3rd party library and i dont think anybody active on the forum is doing a project for web it might be hard to get answers
