I am a complete newbie to the RPi world and would like to know what I might need to purchase (including best RPi type and software for this use) to load and play a .html file that includes lots of movement (eg html5 game or lots of gifs). Rather than using the RPi to access an online page, I was hoping I could just put a .html project (plus its .js and .css files, etc etc) locally onto an RPi operating system and just run it from the desktop so that no internet access is required. I'd hope to do this through a touchscreen like this, if these are good options:
Is this possible, and if so what would be the interim steps in getting .html files to run smoothly? For example, what browser should I try? And would I have to retro-fit my html file to play in that browser? I have the html projects already created, so this would be about retro-fitting them for the RPi system. I found this discussion about browsers but not sure if things have changed/updated/got better since then viewtopic.php?f=36&t=107966&start=25
This is about the only tutorial I've found so far that mentions fitting a html file for use on RPi: http://raspberrywebserver.com/html-and- ... qus_thread but it doesn't really account for loading locally rather than from a server/the net.
My html pages tend to include a lot of movement, so the issue of lag is something I'm also interested in... I've heard that the RPi struggles with frame-rate on moving elements in html5? Is this still the case?
Thanks for any help you can give me or any tutorials you can point me to. Sorry for being so vague! Maybe I should just use Scratch to create games instead...
