Open online .c3p directly in editor.construct.net ?

    Guys i notice that you open the demos directly into the editor.construct.net using a "#open" tag

    eg. https://editor.construct.net/#open=demonoire

    is it possible for users sharing c3p files to also do that?

    i.e. share a link that will actually open a c3p in the editor online ?

    would be pretty cool for sharing / helping / collaborating

  • I'm afraid it's not possible at the moment. Web pages can't directly access files on disk for security reasons, and currently there's no other API for web pages to register a file type association. The desktop build can do it if you manually associate it with .c3p files.

  • Try Construct 3

    Could an official C3 browser extension solve problems like these?

    I assume that those would have more permissions (e.g. local file access), since they require to be installed manually.

    (Also created this topic regarding browser extensions to workaround permission issues quite a while ago.)

  • I agree with an official Construct 3 extension. It will solve a lot of limitations, it can even compensate for Desktop features not available on the cloud editor. I think it won't be a bother to some users if left optional.

  • I don't think Chrome extensions can do this, either. The extension APIs don't appear to provide file type associations, nor unsandboxed file system access. I also can't find anything that covers any of the other features only available in the desktop build, like copy-paste for images or launching external software. So I can't see any capabilities at all that it would be useful to add via an extension. This is why we have the desktop build, which provides all these features (and potentially more if we need them).
