Abstract

Understanding the architecture of Cocos2d-js will give you a solid foundation for understanding the overall framework. This section will not cover the detailed architecture, which is beyond the scope of this book, but we will cover the necessary details that you need to be aware of in order to move forward. Cocos2d-js is a pure JavaScript-based game framework that runs on the browser stack. You can compile it as a Web app and run in on every browser; however, the API’s and object’s hierarchy are the same as for Cocos2d-x. So, with the help of JSB and SpiderMonkey, your JavaScript game code can be deployed as a native app that actually utilizes the core rendering pipeline of OpenGL/DirectX.
