JavaScript Tile Map Editor

One of the things that took me a lot of time during LD23 was level design. This is partly because I didn’t have a tile map editor that I was familiar with and it seemed like working with the CSV data was good enough.

I decided I wanted to have a more visual editor for future LDs (yes, I’m definitely doing this again!) so I made one. Of course, it’s in JavaScript since that’s what my game was made with and I’m trying to improve my JavaScript programming.

Please, give it a try¬†and let me know what you think in the comments below. I’m currently hosting it via Dropbox, but I may provide a more permanent home if needed. Also, if there is interest, I’d be glad to put up a bitbucket repo with complete source.

It has been tested thoroughly in Chrome, and minimally in Firefox and IE9. I recommend using Chrome for now.

Here’s a simple screenshot to give you a feel for it:

    Hi Kiswa,

    I’ve looked at some javascript based tile editors and the one you did could fit a project that I’m considering.

    Is it open source? Where can it be downloaded?
