Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

+ add another resource

You're using npm packages, so we've auto-selected Babel for you here, which we require to process imports and make it all work. If you need to use a different JavaScript preprocessor, remove the packages in the npm tab.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

Use npm Packages

We can make npm packages available for you to use in your JavaScript. We use webpack to prepare them and make them available to import. We'll also process your JavaScript with Babel.

⚠️ This feature can only be used by logged in users.

    <!-- Creating scene -->

    <!--  --------- SKY  --------- -->

    <a-sky id="background-img" color="#EBEBEB"></a-sky>

    <!--  --------- GROUND  --------- -->

    <a-plane id="ground" color="#000000" position="0 0 0" rotation="-90 0 0" width="10" lenght="10"></a-plane>

    <!--  --------- SHAPES  --------- -->

    <a-entity position="1 0.7 0" material="color:navy; transparency:true; opacity:0.7" geometry="primitive: ring; radiusOuter: 0.7; radiusInner: 0.25;" position="-1 0.7 0">

      <a-animation attribute="position" from="0 0.5 -3" to="0 3 -2" direction="alternate" repeat="indefinite"></a-animation>
      <!--By making the animation a child of the shape you make sure this is the element afect by it.
You choose an attribute to animate and "say" how does the animation start (from) and how it ends (to)
By making the direction alternate, you make sure it dgoes back and forth, and making repetition indefinite is the same thing as saying it's on loop
This is the most common way to create an animation-->


    <a-ring position="-1 0.7 0" color="teal" radius-inner="0.25" radius-outer="0.7">

      <a-animation attribute="material.opacity" from="0" to="0.5" direction="alternate" repeat="3"></a-animation>
      <!--This will happen only 3 times, and then the ring will disappear because the from (initial) state is opacity=0 -->

    <!--Since there are some properties that belong to components, you sometimes have to call  componentName.property

animation documentation: https://aframe.io/docs/master/core/animations.html

     <a-box position="2 0.7 0" color="tomato" depth="1" height="1" width="1">

      <a-animation attribute="rotation" from="0 0 0" to="360 180 0" dur="2000" direction="alternate" begin="mouseenter" end="mouseleave "repeat="10"></a-animation>
Duration and delay are two other properties of the animation that can help you create a more complex one 

You can have animations triggered by events and stopped by events as well
Place gaze cursor on box to begin animation, and leave the box to stop it -->
    <!--  --------- CAMERA AND CURSOR  --------- -->

    <a-camera look-controls-enabled wasd-controls-enabled position="0 0 3">

      <a-cursor position="0 0 -3" geometry="primitive: ring; radiusOuter: 0.030; radiusInner: 0.020;" material="color: #11d8c4; shader: flat" fuse="true" timeout="10">

🕑 One or more of the npm packages you are using needs to be built. You're the first person to ever need it! We're building it right now and your preview will start updating again when it's ready.
