Jumpstart your Angular applications with Indigo.Design, a unified platform for visual design, UX prototyping, code generation, and app development.

voxel.js is a collection of projects which allows you to create Minecraft-like games in the browser. voxel.js requires a browser which has WebGL support, as the games created with Voxel.js required it to run.

The idea behind voxel.js was to create a framework which is not monolithic but rather composed of several modules.  Modules can be installed using Node.js package manager NPM.

The core components of voxel.js are the voxel-engine which is required for any voxel.js games, voxel – the logic that generates the voxel game world and voxel-mesh which takes data from the previously mentioned voxel module and turns it into a three.js mesh that can be displayed as a game.

voxel.js also has several add-ons to complement the above core modules. They range from add-ons which allow you to create simple NPC creatures, to add-ons which can generate a forest or debrit. You can check out voxel.js’s website for more information.
