Javascript/Canvas project, but not sure about Metro ...


  • I'm an indie developer when not doing contract or consulting work.

    I have a big project for creating animations on the HTML5 canvas but ...

    well, let's just say I'm very excited to learn Metro can be coded with Javascript. Unfortunately I don't have an extra computer to commit to testing Windows 8 but I'd like to know if my project will run with Metro. ie: can my project be used to make Metro animations/apps?

    Is there a Metro emulator available for Windows 7?  I'm thinking something similar to the mobile emulator comes with with VC2010

  • Hi RaptorRex,

    There is a simulator, but it runs only on Windows 8.

    If you don't have a physical machine to run the Consumer Preview on you could run it in a virtual machine. See this post on answers for information on Compatible VM Products.

  • Thanks. It worked great. Is there a forum somewhere that I can offer up my script for other Metro developers to use?
