Have you ever found programming extremely enjoyable? I hope so, otherwise you probably shouldn’t be programming. Well, either way, I found a whole new way of making programming fun: integrating new programming technologies to make your games even easier to use! In this article in video, I show you how I gave myself and my friends the ability to completely control my Minecraft servers through a simple web application interface using Node.js and Socket.io.
As I stated in the video, this project is still a work in progress. However, I will just be doing minor modifications for now – making a few hard-coded strings into configurable options, adding additional comments to help you all understand, etc – and then I will throw the whole code base up on GitHub, and then create a new project page here on this blog. So, you can either watch my GitHub page or the projects page to see when that shows up. I will also announce when it’s up via Twitter, Facebook, and Google+, so you can follow me there to find out more.
That is all for this fine Monday morning. Thanks for watching and reading. I wish I could give you a sneak peek at what will be coming on Thursday, but I don’t even know, myself, so it’ll be a surprise for all of us. God bless and happy coding!
