☑ Playcanvas script is not native JS. What is it?

I started learning playcanvas, Playcanvas script is not native javascript, what is it?

Yes, PlayCanvas is pure javascript. There is no compilation step and it runs in the directly in the browser.

Thank you for your answer. but a lot of properties and methods are not javascript, How to learn the script.

Perhaps you are confusing Javascript (the programming language that runs in browsers) with an API (a set of functions that you can use to communicate with a program).

Everything in PlayCanvas is written in Javascript. We provide a runtime engine and you can use Javascript to talk to our API.

To learn how to use PlayCanvas take a look at our documentation: http://developer.playcanvas.com
