This API has the following features:



Templates


ABWorld

This API does not have AB support.
It defines a global variable called "ABWorld" with not much in it:
 

 ABWorld;                 // instance of class ABWorldClass  
 

 ABWorld.canvas;          // a variable to point to the canvas   		
  
 
 ABWorld.fullwidth();     // return full width of window on desktop / screen on mobile 
 ABWorld.fullheight();    // return full height of window on desktop / screen on mobile

Creating canvas

For making screenshots, Ancient Brain needs to find the canvas.
Normally with P5 you createCanvas() and carry on:
 
	  createCanvas ( ... );		 
If the canvas does not display, or if the AB system fails to find the canvas for screenshots, help it out by telling it where the canvas is:
 

	var canvas = createCanvas ( ... );		 

	ABWorld.setCanvas ( canvas );
