    I have been using react-three-fiber and react-three-drei - the react version of this project. The examples are over whelming and wonderful


    One of my favorites is the image gallery. I modified this so that clicking on an image take you into another room (gallery).

    https://github.com/pmndrs/drei is a collection of examples and helpers.

    Most impressive to me is the one using a GLTF model, video textures on text, reflections and more. A standalone version is


    But even more impressive is the sandbox showing the not-very-many-lines-of-code at


    A lot to putting a layer on top of threejs and I have run a fair number of head scratchers. But still the potential is huge. Using threejs has completely changed the way I look at website development. So if you are a svelte person I would definitely look into this.

  • figured out an outline shader, heres the code (raymarching)
    1 project | /r/threejs | 11 Dec 2023
    the shader is here if you want it in vanilla https://github.com/pmndrs/drei/blob/master/src/core/Outlines.tsx though keep in mind it needs some additional work to support skeletons and instances, that's the code in the layout effect.

    the eco system gives you so much freedom, especially when it comes to properly align, display your models, and to make them look nice. there are dozens of components for staging, lighting, soft shadows, you would miss out on all of that https://github.com/pmndrs/drei

    there's a whole eco system around three in react and next. it starts with react-three-fiber, drei has tons of helpers, and then there's three-next for when you need 100% lighthouse, persisting canvas across routes etc.
  • Best toolset for building a 3D Website?
    5 projects | /r/webdev | 9 Mar 2023
    Definitely ThreeJS and specifically React Three Fiber. React Three Fiber is an amazing wrapper around three that greatly reduces boilerplate. And because of how modular react is, the community has grown massively. With lots of helper components in the Drei library, and amazing examples in the author's Twitter. The Codesandbox is also a goldmine of example. And one of the best-produced courses by Bruno Simon to help you get started. He is the creator of this famous portfolio site.
  • Built a new splash page at the beginning of the year. Used the opportunity to experiment with react-three-fiber.

    I picked the stack I did to expand upon my skill set. In particular, I wanted to brush up on react-three-fiber, react-spring & drei.
