You can download snippets in 2 formats: ZIP file, or .HTML5 standalone app file.
First, write your snippet, or open an existing one.
Then click on Project / Download in the main menu, and choose your format, That's all !
Now simply double click on the .html file to run it localy in your browser, or put it on your own web server !
Note that all the libs that you have included in project options will be included in this "one standalone .html5 application file"
From that file, you can for example create an installable desktop application using titanium
Or a mobile application using phonegap
PS: Note that the download fonctionnality requires flash 10 :'( ...
If you want to get the entire zipped folder, click on "Download as standalone .html5 application (zipped folder)"
PS(2): The "download feature" is THE No1 reason, why you should use use natively supported libaries. It's the only way to generate standalone applications from snippets that can run offline.
The editor let you edit 3 files: html5 file, css3 file and the Js file.
1 - This is your current snippet's menu
User infos @html5snippet.net are: nickname, short description, website url and avatar image. All 4 are optionnal and set to empty when you create new account.
You can access all this infos on your profile's page: Log in, then go to http://html5snippet.net and click on "My Home Page" in the top-right corner menu.
You will be redirected to your profile page. You can edit your nickname, description and website directly inplace. To upload new avatar image, simply
drag and drop an image from your desktop to the blue "Drag and drop your avatar image here" zone. Note that this feature only works on Firefox and Chrome.
On others browsers you will not be able to upload your avatar :'/ .... until they support the html5 file api properly !
On this page, you can also manage your snippets's visibility. You can make them private by unchecking public. When a snippet is private, only you can see/edit/run it.
To be able to share a snippet with visitors and other users, it has to be public!
"Visible here" checkbox, if is UNchecked, means that visitors who go to your profile page will not see this snippet, but if the visitor have direct url to the snippet, and this snippet is public, he/she will have access(read/fork) to it.
Note that since 23 may 2011 when you create and save new snippet on server, it will be public by default and NOT visible at your home page.
The automaticly generated slide-show is made from all your public snippets (see below).
To use a library in your snippet, open project proprties panel, by clicking on "project" -> "options" in the main menu. Then pick a library in the list and click on add. We'll choose jquery here. Then, close project properties panel.
That's all!, you can now use jquery in your snippet !
Multiple libraries can be used in a project. Note that load order is important ! On the screenshot below, jQuery is loaded in first and three.js in last.
The app doesn't manage dependancies for you, so if you, for example want to use jQueryUI, you have to load jQuery too..., and before jQueryUI.
For instance, the limit is set to 6 libs/frameworks max by project.
We support 39 libraries/frameworks, but it may be that you want to load other, unsupported libraries.
To do that, you simply declare an external script/stylesheet in html !
On a snippet below, for example, we load cofeescript from github, and jquery from jquery.com:
PS: If you use some awesome library, that we don't support, please drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, we'll see what we can do :)
