Glitch is a collaborative coding site that provides a full code editor for both frontend and backend code and support for multiple files. Glitch lets you remix existing projects and make them your own, and instantly host and deploy changes for everyone to see.
Hit Remix on this A-Frame project, start coding A-Frame in
views/index.html, and see your site published live on each change! The base A-Frame Glitch for example is published at
The boilerplate contains:
- A simple HTML file that links to the current version of A-Frame of A-Frame
- An optional local development server
- An easy deployment workflow for GitHub Pages to share with the world
We can grab the boilerplate in one of two ways:
In either case, it is important to serve the project using a local server so that assets load properly.
If we want to include the JS build from the CDN, we can drop a
<script> tag straight into our HTML:
If we want to serve it locally, we can download the JS build:
Note we should serve the project using a local server so that assets load properly.
For more advanced users who want to use their own build steps, we can install through npm:
Then we can just require A-Frame from our app, perhaps built with Browserify or Webpack:
We should develop projects using a local server so that files are properly served. We can either:
- Download the Mongoose application and open it from the same directory as your HTML file.
python -m SimpleHTTPServerin a terminal in the same directory as your HTML file.
- Use Node and npm to start the local server with
npm install && npm run start.
If you have npm, you can get started with scene template right from the command line with
angle, a command line interface for A-Frame:
