Tap and Click events not triggered when building a nwjs desktop app


Recommended Posts

Hello there,

First, I have to say I really love this tool, so easy and fast, you rock guys ! :) (if they come here, dunno)
So, I'm trying to make a drag n drop application with the last version of pixi and I started with the example from the website (http://pixijs.github.io/examples/#/demos/dragging.js),

Then I tried to compile the code to make an exe via nwjs (nw -r mypath) , but the touch/click events don't seem to work.
everything is fine on firefox, chrome & IE don't work
I tried to run this on my wamp server, and that works great everywhere.
So It seems the problem lies in crossdomain policies ? if so, is there a workaround ? 

here is the code, for now :

var renderer = PIXI.autoDetectRenderer(800, 600);

// create the root of the scene graph
var stage = new PIXI.Container();

// create a texture from an image path
var texture = PIXI.Texture.fromImage('bunny.png');

for (var i = 0; i < 10; i++)
    createBunny(Math.floor(Math.random() * 800) , Math.floor(Math.random() * 600));

function createBunny(x, y)
    // create our little bunny friend..
    var bunny = new PIXI.Sprite(texture);

    // enable the bunny to be interactive... this will allow it to respond to mouse and touch events
    bunny.interactive = true;

    // this button mode will mean the hand cursor appears when you roll over the bunny with your mouse
    bunny.buttonMode = true;

    // center the bunny's anchor point

    // make it a bit bigger, so it's easier to grab

    // setup events
        // events for drag start
        .on('mousedown', onDragStart)
        .on('touchstart', onDragStart)
        // events for drag end
        .on('mouseup', onDragEnd)
        .on('mouseupoutside', onDragEnd)
        .on('touchend', onDragEnd)
        .on('touchendoutside', onDragEnd)
        // events for drag move
        .on('mousemove', onDragMove)
        .on('touchmove', onDragMove);

    // move the sprite to its designated position
    bunny.position.x = x;
    bunny.position.y = y;

    // add it to the stage

requestAnimationFrame( animate );

function animate() {


    // render the stage

function onDragStart(event)
    // store a reference to the data
    // the reason for this is because of multitouch
    // we want to track the movement of this particular touch
    this.data = event.data;
    this.alpha = 0.5;
    this.dragging = true;

function onDragEnd()
    this.alpha = 1;

    this.dragging = false;

    // set the interaction data to null
    this.data = null;

function onDragMove()
    if (this.dragging)
        var newPosition = this.data.getLocalPosition(this.parent);
        this.position.x = newPosition.x;
        this.position.y = newPosition.y;

Still haven't found out, but the strange thing is older pixi versions like 2.2.9 are working (I'll try to gradually downgrade the versions to check the difference in the event manager)

If you familiar with git bisect, tracking down the sha would be useful.
