Minecraft in 30 lines of code (or Web VR with React)

March 22, 2017

Learn how to create your own little Minecraft VR game in just 30 lines of React-y Javascript.

Just as you create web front ends with React you can place images, text and 3D objects in an interactive 3D VR world. We will learn the basics of A-Frame and how React and Modern Javascript allows us to encapsulate and manage the complexities of it; allowing us to quickly create maintainable/extensible Apps and Visualisations.

Slides but a lot of it is based off demos, so please see code below.
