Anyone out there on the ol' flist have any suggestions for tutorials or books I can read (hopefully from the library) to help me learn how to work with node webkit programming?
I'm a tinkerer and when I say "learn code" I usually mean "make it break in interesting ways until I--nearly accidentally--cobble together something that works".
Specifically what I want to do is this.
I used Twine Wrapper
to make an app out of my Twine game.
I can see in the app.js
file that it is possible to add, remove, and edit menus and menu items.
I'd like to change the menus so that "Edit" and probably "Window" are hidden (but not disabled, in case people still want to copy & paste...???). Then I want to add a "File" menu with "Redo" and "Undo" as menu items. These items would then have the same functionality as the Undo and Redo arrows/buttons in the Twine game itself.
From looking at the HTML source, I see that these buttons trigger "Engine.goBack" and "Engine.goForward" commands. But how to get a menu item to do that? I don't even know what that
For reference, a page like this
is way over my head. I am definitely looking for the "For Dummies" end of the tutorial spectrum. To be really, really clear, I am asking to learn how to program, and I don't even know which programming language I'm asking about.
Thank you anyone who can point me in a direction!
