    JavaScript 3D library

    The aim of the project is to create an easy-to-use, lightweight, cross-browser, general-purpose 3D library. The current builds only include a WebGL renderer but WebGPU (experimental), SVG and CSS3D renderers are also available as addons.



    This code creates a scene, a camera, and a geometric cube, and it adds the cube to the scene. It then creates a WebGL renderer for the scene and camera, and it adds that viewport to the document.body element. Finally, it animates the cube within the scene for the camera.

    import * as THREE from 'three';
    const width = window.innerWidth, height = window.innerHeight;
    // init
    const camera = new THREE.PerspectiveCamera( 70, width / height, 0.01, 10 );
    camera.position.z = 1;
    const scene = new THREE.Scene();
    const geometry = new THREE.BoxGeometry( 0.2, 0.2, 0.2 );
    const material = new THREE.MeshNormalMaterial();
    const mesh = new THREE.Mesh( geometry, material );
    scene.add( mesh );
    const renderer = new THREE.WebGLRenderer( { antialias: true } );
    renderer.setSize( width, height );
    renderer.setAnimationLoop( animate );
    document.body.appendChild( renderer.domElement );
    // animation
    function animate( time ) {
        mesh.rotation.x = time / 2000;
        mesh.rotation.y = time / 1000;
        renderer.render( scene, camera );

    If everything goes well, you should see this.
