If you have the Famous Engine included in your project, it is very easy to start getting content rendered to the screen. Below is a short example of how to get HTML content written to the screen.
var FamousEngine = ;var DOMElement = ;FamousEngine;var scene = FamousEngine;var node = scene;var domEl = nodecontent: 'Hello World'properties:fontFamily: 'Arial';
In this example, we use the Famous Engine to kick off the rendering process and create a scene for our application. From here, we can add nodes to our scene and use components to give them the ability to draw. For more, here are some deeper dives on scene graph and components.
If you are looking for an easy way to get a Famous application up and running, check out our seed project. This includes the FamousEngine, index.html file, preloaded CSS with friendly default values, and some boilerplate to get you started.
The Famous Engine is also available on npm.
npm install famous
This will add the Famous Engine to your node_modules folder to be included into your project.
Cloning this repository directly is primarily for those wishing to contribute to our codebase. Check out our contributing instructions to get involved.
Note: cloning only provides the Famo.us folder with all Famo.us code, but it does no application scaffolding. You will additionally need to create your own index.html. Currently we have a dependency on glslify, a browserify transform to compile our glsl shaders.
