When is the new 2d ui expected to be released? I’m asking as I need to convert an old starling as3 project and currently would like to use playcanvas but it does not support enough (or any besides sprites) for me. This is effectively forcing me to use unity.
I’d just use HTML it’s way more powerful than most UI interfaces. I use Mithril but ReactJS works well too.
Initial release of 2D functionality won’t have features for UI in most sense. It will have to be mostly implemented on top of it. Treat it more as 2D rendering functionality.
If you need panels, buttons, sliders, text input, and other stuff that HTML has, then I recommend to follow @whydoidoit advice - use HTML DOM for it.
