I’m preparing to teach a GDevelop class, and have started a set of opensource tutorials (GDevelop Basics).
The class I’m teaching will only have iPads, no PCs, and that limits them to only the web editor. The iPads is the school’s policy, not mine, and I can’t change it. Furthermore, it seems that an increasing number of schools are switching from PC to a tablets only environment.
The biggest problem I’m facing now, is that there are no easy ways for the students to use their own custom graphics in the web editor. The best I can do now, is to pick a random built-in image, change the URL in the resources panel, and then reload the project, but that’s a terribly hacky way.
I understand that allowing graphics upload in the web editor won’t be easy to implement, but it should be rather easy to allow the entry of a resource URL. That will allow a student to upload their images to a hosting site that allows cross-origin requests (eg. github, imgur), and enter the URL into the GDevelop web editor.
