SvelteKit and Three.js are powerful tools that can be combined to create impressive 3D graphics and interactive experiences right in your web applications. In this tutorial, we'll walk you through the process of integrating Three.js into your SvelteKit project and creating a simple 3D scene.


Before we begin, make sure you have the following set up:

Setting Up the Project

First, let's create a new SvelteKit project and navigate to its root directory in the terminal:


Next, install the three package, use your preferred package manager:


Types always help,but if not just remove remove the type definitions, and you should be good to go. so let's install the @types/three package as well:


Creating a Basic 3D Scene

In your SvelteKit project, create a new Svelte component, let's call it ThreeScene.svelte:


Running the Project

To run the project, use the following command:


You should see a cube rendered on the page:
