I've created a JavaScript web browser game. The HTML page, Game.html, within folder Game references several other JS/jQuery/CSS files stored in sub folders.

I simply want to add the Game folder, which includes the Game.html file and all of its related files to SharePoint 2013 as a page. That way people can play the game on SP 2013.

enter image description here

I've tried the following:

  • Clicked Add Page. This gives me the Master Page and only allows me to add web parts. So I tried adding a Content Editor Web Part and tried to reference the Game.html page, but then I can't reference the rest of the needed JavaScript.

  • Then I mapped my drive directly to the server and uploaded my Game folder to the server. From there, I created a Master Page of Game.html in Design Manager... this did not work.

Is there a simple way to add my Game.html page to SP 2013 and have it reference all of its required JS files and actually run the game?

Thanks


Edit: Okay, here's what I did:

1) I uploaded all assets to http://server/SiteAssets/Forms/AllItems.aspx, including main Game.html file, and supporting images and JS files.

2) Changed all references in Game.html to match the same folder that Game is in:

    <script src="http://Server/SiteAssets/createjs.js"></script>
    <script src="http://Server/SiteAssets/bootstrap.js"></script>
    <script src="http://Server/SiteAssets/jquery.js"></script>
etc...

3) Went to Settings -> Add a page, which is now at http://Server/Pages/Game.aspx.

4) Added Content Editor Web Part (CEWP) to new Page, titled Game. Edited the CEWP to get the Game.html file located in SiteAssets.

5) Game.html seems to render okay:

However, when I submit my name in the text box, it's supposed to run the JavaScript game. But it's not working. I know it's running JavaScript because I did:

Game.html: <body onload="test()">

Game.html: function test() { alert("working"); } Outputs "working".

There's no console output error. And the jQuery and rest of the code seems to render for a second, flicker, and then return to the static HTML...

Any thoughts?

  • add the virtual directory to your sharepoint site and convert it to an application, so the virtual path to it works, then have it referenced anywhere in your sharepoint site. – Mike Jan 24 '14 at 15:26
  • @Mike How do I convert it to an app? Google search sharepoint 2013 conversion to application doesn't turn up anything useful. – Growler Jan 24 '14 at 15:39
  • Now that I think about it, @tyshock's solution would work better. – Mike Jan 24 '14 at 15:43
  • The only obvious thing I can think of is that a single page should have only one html tag and one body tag. Your embedded Game.html doc should not have <html> or <body>, as SharePoint's masterpage already has those tags. – tyshock Jan 24 '14 at 18:35

If you are just looking for a one-off implementation, you could put the supporting files in a doc library ('Site Assets' would be a good one), Then, use the Content Editor Web Part route that you described above with the relative references within the 'Game.html' that point to those supporting file locations.

  • Just a simple one-off. How would I add my Game.html main page as a page within SharePoint? Would I just create a generic page, and then create a Content Editor Web part and embed? But then I can't reference more than one JS file. – Growler Jan 24 '14 at 15:28
  • In your 'Game.html', you can have multiple <script> tags that each pull in a js file. – tyshock Jan 24 '14 at 15:30
  • Thanks I'll give that a try. Is there a way for me to enable explorer view? I don't want to upload each file one by one. – Growler Jan 24 '14 at 15:32
  • Tyshock please see my update above. – Growler Jan 24 '14 at 16:47
