I’m trying to use a firebase database in p5js to read and write a high score table for a game. I followed Shiffman’s Firebase: Saving Data - Programming with Text video, but it’s now out of date. I’m trying to build an example like his, but with up-to-date firebase API syntax. I’m not there yet, but have a general question about scope.
If I declare a variable in my index.html like this:
I can use the variable testData in my p5js code, i.e. its scope extends into my p5js code. However, if I include type=“module” in the script tag, like this:
The scope of testData doesn’t extend into the p5js script.
This matters because in the new firebase syntax, the libraries/functions for the firebase API need the type=“module” option in the script tag. This prevents me from using the API functions inside my p5js code.
