A H5P web-application using this library consists of four components, which communicate between each other:
- 1.This library (@lumieducation/h5p-server and possibly other @lumieducation packages) on the server-side (in yellow below)
- 2.Your server (implementation of the interfaces of this library + other endpoints, in blue below)
- 3.Your web client (running in the browser, in blue below, @lumieducation/h5p-webcomponents and @lumieducation/h5p-react can help your here if you want to write a SPA application)
- 4.Joubel's H5P player / editor client (downloaded by you and served by your server, in grey below)
As you can see, this library is not an out-of-the-box solution for all your needs, but requires you to implement your own server and web client.
The diagram shows how the four components interact in a selection of use cases. Each use case has a specific colour and can be traced through the system by it.
Diagram showing the components at work
Note: The diagram doesn't show a complete list of all use cases and is only intended to illustrate how everything plays together! There is a lot more functionality in the packages, which is not listed here.
The player is simpler, as it doesn't have as many endpoints, but works in a comparable way to the structure in the diagram.
There is a basic example implementation of the server and client (blue parts) using Express (and server-side rendering) in the
/packages/h5p-examplesfolder. There is also a more advanced SPA example in the
/packages/h5p-rest-example-clientfolders. Check out the documentation on it here.
