WAK: MQTT for IoT – Brief Documentation

Read about MQTT here. Setting up your scene: 1. Create a GameObject. 2. Add the following scripts: ConnectionBroker, DesktopClient, and WebGLClient. 3. Configure your connection options on the ConnectionBroker’s DefaultConnectionOptions field. 4. Add the GlobalTopic script to one of your game objects.  Set its filter (topic path) and other options. 5. Add the SomeReceiver script […]

Puzzle and Dragons: Skills Overview

Previously, I wrote about character and player attributes.  This time I will give an overview of special abilities. PAD has a lot special effects that can be combined into any one skill.  Lets take a look at a skill representation in the RPG database. The above skill will do the following: Reduce all enemy characters’ […]

Puzzle and Dragons: Attributes

In this post I want to share how we approached attributes early on in a “Puzzle and Dragons” clone. Let’s start with a representation of a character:   This JSON is part of a larger RPG database JSON file that is loaded at runtime.  When a character is spawned, either in menus or dungeon, the common […]

Switching WAK Provider

By default, each WAK HTTPOperation uses Unity’s WWW class to communicate over the wire.  There are other, more robust, HTTP libraries out there and are fully supported in WAK.  A couple reasons why you would want to use a library such as BestHTTP, UniWeb, or UnityHTTP are: WWW class is limited to the GET and POST […]

Modeling WAK Responses

In the previous post we created a simple WAK HTTP operation and retrieved a blob of unusable data from Instagram. What we need to do with that JSON blob is to generate C# classes from it so that the response can be accessed in Unity.  The simplest way to go about this, even before creating […]

Inside WAK Operations

WAK operations define everything about an HTTP call.  The information on how to structure the class comes from the API’s documentation. Let’s take a look at one of Instagram’s endpoints. Let’s take a look at the URI: https://api.instagram.com/v1/tags/{tag-name}/media/recent?access_token=ACCESS-TOKEN&count=100 Base URI Resource Path Query String https://api.instagram.com/v1/ tags/{tag-name}/media/recent ?access_token=ACCESS-TOKEN&count=10 This is our entry point into Intagram’s version […]

How WAK Works

Web API Kit is a set of tools to reduce the code you need to write for the Unity WWW class, UniWeb, BestHTTP, and UnityHTTP. A fully featured WWW call that supports authentication, timeouts, cancellation, conversion of returned JSON or XML data into a usable C# class would easily be over 200 lines of code. […]
