    Yes. We are integrating this aPI more directly in to API

    Light Related API is coming later with second wave of JS API update.

    I'll need to check details and try myself but should be no issues there. I'll check it.

    glow texture won't cast shadows, I tried to find a way to cast shadows but the only 2 ways that I know is light object or a shader node which doesn't exist yet

    Beta supports only one light source. Directional light. We are planning to bring more light source eventually but we need to figure out more essential things first :)

    THIS..... From a design based approach, this tutorial has taught me more than the hours of Javascript tutorial videos I've been watching online.
    Can we please have more like this?
    Thank you

    Would be nice to have support for Typescript (https://www.typescriptlang.org/) since it allows even writing in plain Javascript if one wants to. The transpiler for Typescript is built in Typescript and thus runs in Javascript, so it could be embedded in Buildbox. That way methods would have named parameters, could have interfaces etc.
    For editing support with Intellisense features could use the Monaco editor (also in Typescript/Javascript), see https://github.com/Microsoft/monaco-editor (the editor used in Visual Studio Code) and https://github.com/microsoft/monaco-typescript

    Hi Nik
    Where do you put the 'Node A' snippet of code?
    In function init{}
    In function update{}
    In a new function called something?
    I assume not function signal{}
