• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

MSFS Approach to Coding An EFB/Tablet

Hi there,
I was wondering if there was some sort of a template for creating an EFB/Tablet for an aircraft? I have coded a tablet previously but none of the code worked as I used standard HTML and javascript. I have seen in a lot of aircraft there are Template.html and template.js so I was not sure if that was linked in any way to a template of some respects or a base to use.

if not what would be the best approach to coding something like this and if there was any software like react.js electron.js etc etc

There is something like react.js!
it is worth noting that these sections describe the underlying SDK API for creating gauges using JavaScript, however many aircraft - both custom ones and those from Microsoft - use the MSFS Avionics Framework, which is a component based API specifically designed for making instrumentation using a React-like framework.
