Here at Mozilla, we have been big fans of Glitch. At the begining of 2017 we made the decision to sponsor our A-Frame content on their system. The decision was easy. Glitch makes it simple to explore, and remix live program code examples for WebVR.
We also love the people at the rear of Glitch. They have created a culture plus a community that is kind, encouraging, plus champions creativity. We share their own vision for a web that is innovative, personal, and human . The opportunity to deliver immersive experiences through the internet browser opens a whole new avenue to get creativity. It allows us to move further than screens, and keyboards. It is interesting, and new, and sometimes a little weird (but in a good way).
Building a virtual reality encounter may seem daunting, but it really isn’ big t. WebVR and frameworks like A-Frame make it really easy to get started. This is why we all worked with Glitch to create a WebVR beginner kit. It is a free, 5-part video clip course with interactive code good examples that will teach you the fundamentals of WebVR using A-Frame. Our hope is the fact that this starter kit will motivate anyone who has been on the fence regarding creating virtual reality experiences to jump in and get started.
Check out part one of the five-part collection below. If you want more, I’ m encourage you to check out the full beginner kit here , or utilize the link at the bottom of this post.
In the Glitch viewer embedded beneath, you can see how to make a WebVR planetarium in just a few easy-to-follow steps. A person learn interactively (and painlessly) simply by editing and remixing the functioning code in the viewer:
