PlayerIO JavaScript SDK updates

Posted: 4 May 2017

We've just released a few updates to the PlayerIO JavaScript SDK.

We now fully support HTTPS, both for regular API requests, and for Websocket multiplayer connections. You control this by using the properties useSecureApiRequests and useSecureConnections, respectively.

We have also added the classic FridgeMagnets as a JavaScript example game, and since it's 2017 we've made sure it works on mobile devices, and we've added some Emojis that can be dragged around as well.

You can download the example as part of the PlayerIO SDK right now, and you can also try a live version of the example game here:

Thank you for all the feedback we've received so far, we're always looking forward to hearing from you, let us know what you think in the JavaScript Forum.
