A lightweight graphical user interface for changing variables in JavaScript.

Get started with dat.GUI by reading the tutorial at http://workshop.chromeexperiments.com/examples/gui.

Packaged Builds

The easiest way to use dat.GUI in your code is by using the built source at build/dat.gui.min.js. These built JavaScript files bundle all the necessary dependencies to run dat.GUI.

In your head tag, include the following code:

<script type="text/javascript" src="dat.gui.min.js"></script>

Directory Contents

├── build - Compiled source code.
├── src - Source files.
├── tests - Tests.
└── webpack - Webpack config files.

Building your own dat.GUI

In the terminal, enter the following:

$ npm install
$ npm run build

npm scripts

  • npm run build - Build development and production version of scripts.
  • npm run dev - Build development version of script and watch for changes.

Working with Content Security Policy

If you're using a server with a Content Security Policy in place that blocks 'unsafe-inline', you will have problems when dat.gui.js tries to inject style information. To get around this, load 'build/dat.gui.css' as an external style sheet.
