npm install lume


LUME is composed of several packages that can be used individually, or together as a whole:

lume - HTML elements for rich graphics

HTML elements for easily defining rich and interactive 2D or 3D applications powered by both CSS and WebGL.

This package uses and re-exports features from the below packages.

glas - WebGL engine written in AssemblyScript

This is a WebGL engine with the consistent performance of WebAssembly, written in AssemblyScript (a TypeScript-to-WebAssembly compiler).

@lume/element - System for defining HTML elements

This is a web component system that allows you to create new, fast, and performant HTML elements in a simple way. It provides the foundation for LUME's HTML elements, and a standard pattern for building new elements that extend the features of LUME.

@lume/variable - Reactive variables

Create reactive variables and observe their changes in a simple and concise way with less code and less coupling.

element-behaviors - Mix functionalities onto HTML elements

This allows you to augment HTML elements with features called "behaviors" that are similar to custom elements: each behavior is defined as a class that has the same lifecycle methods as custom elements. The difference is that an unlimited number of behaviors can be associated with an element.
