generator-threejs Build Status

A generator for Yeoman that builds basic scaffolding based on common best practices for a project using three.js.

The generated project includes a local server for live reloading and linting as you develop (see the Development Server section below for how to run the server).

The starting javascript is exactly the same as the usage guide in the three.js README.

Requirejs is optionally included.

Getting Started

What is Yeoman?

Trick question. It's not a thing. It's this guy:


Basically, he wears a top hat, lives in your computer, and waits for you to tell him what kind of application you wish to create.

Not every new computer comes with a Yeoman pre-installed. He lives in the npm package repository. You only have to ask for him once, then he packs up and moves into your hard drive. Make sure you clean up, he likes new and shiny things.

$ npm install -g yo


To install generator-threejs from npm, run:

$ npm install -g generator-threejs

Then, initiate the generator:

$ yo threejs


Running the generator will present you with any options in a prompt.


Type: Boolean
Default: true

Use AMD in your project.

Development Server

The scaffolding includes a local server using Grunt. To start, make sure you have the grunt-cli installed and run grunt.

Getting To Know Yeoman

Yeoman has a heart of gold. He's a person with feelings and opinions, but he's very easy to work with. If you think he's too opinionated, he can be easily convinced.

If you'd like to get to know Yeoman better and meet some of his friends, Grunt and Bower, check out the complete Getting Started Guide.
