I have been creating banners using either custom JS or by using Adobe Animate CC for quite some time now. As most of you know, size does matter when it comes to HTML5 Ads.
So far I have been able to keep within the limits I got from my customers. However, I am sure the day will come where createjs (the JS lib used by Adobe) is just too big.
I always had Hype in the back of my mind, but so far I have never used it for a job. I’d like to try it for an upcoming project. However, before I do that, I have a few questions regarding its size.
How big is the main library after a project has been exported for deployment?
Is it possible to tweak the library export (eg: dont need sound? dont include it. dont need physics? dont include it)
Which ad networks include Hype in their CDNs?
Do you know of any ad networks where Hype won’t work at all? (folder structure, file types, other requirements)
I am ready to completely switch to Hype. I tried it out and I really like it. I am a decent frontend developer, so touching JS code is absolutely no problem for me. The only thing I am afraid of is: file size.
Any feedback is appreciated
