“Unfortunately several browsers (including Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer) do not support file:// XHR requests, and can’t load extra files needed by the HTML (like a .wasm file, or packaged file data as mentioned lower down). For these browsers you’ll need to serve the files using a local webserver and then open http://localhost:8000/hello.html.”Emscripten SDK has a handy
emrun web/example_emscripten_opengl3.html --browser firefox which will spawn a temporary local webserver (in Firefox). See https://emscripten.org/docs/compiling/Running-html-files-with-emrun.html for details.You may use Python 3 builtin webserver:
python -m http.server -d web (this is what
make serve uses).You may use Python 2 builtin webserver:
cd web && python -m SimpleHTTPServer.If you are accessing the files over a network, certain browsers, such as Firefox, will restrict Gamepad API access to secure contexts only (e.g. https only).
