Here we will learn how to create a small game involving a player running and jumping around platforms, collecting stars and avoiding baddies.
The Basics of Web Workers – HTML5 Rocks
Say HI Send unknown command Stop worker. Messages passed between the main page and workers are copied, not shared. Although that isn’t very interesting, it’s useful for understanding the concepts of web workers. Game object is assigned to a local variable called game and the configuration object is passed to it. What if you want to create your worker script on the fly, or create a self-contained page without having to create separate worker files?
The method takes zero or more strings representing the filenames for the resources to import. The page and worker do not share the same instance, so the end result is that a duplicate is created on each pass.
Table of Contents
The worker will not begin until the file has completely downloaded and executed. That code is extracted as a string using document. It should only be used for testing purposes and not regular browsing.
Download this zip file which contains each step of this tutorial in code and the assets that go with it. Asynchronous events are processed after the current executing script has yielded. This will start the process of bringing Phaser to life. To run your app from the file: Web Workers allow you to do things like fire up long-running scripts to handle computationally intensive tasks, but without blocking the UI or other scripts to handle user interactions.
This is your list of transferrable items. The message payload in this case ‘Hello World’ is accessible in Event. In Chrome, there’s a nice page to view all of the created blob URLs: If the path to your worker returns anthe worker will fail silently. This article will only cover dedicated workers and I’ll refer to them as ‘web workers’ or ‘workers’ throughout. The config object is how you configure your Phaser Game. In actuality, what is happening is that the object alapo being serialized as it’s handed to the worker, and subsequently, de-serialized on the other end.
The interface contains three useful properties for figuring out what went wrong: In my opinion, this new approach is a bit cleaner and more legible. To combat the perf hit, you can use Transferable Objects.

The worker simply returns the message that is passed to it. There are two ways to stop a worker: Workers utilize thread-like message passing to achieve parallelism.
However, unlike pass-by-reference, the ‘version’ from the calling context is no longer available once transferred to the new context. Keep in mind most browsers spawn separate processes for each worker.

Some of these include browser compatibility, static typing, accessibility, and performance. In this case x pixels. However, subworkers come with a few caveats:.
See Communicating with a Alwpok via Message Passing. Communication between a work and its parent page is done using an event model and the postMessage method.
Its contents are quiet literally transferred to the Worker context. One reason for this is that messages passed between main pages and workers are copied, not shared.
