Ancient Brain Starter Tutorial (Three.js)

This tutorial shows you how to get started on Ancient Brain (Three.js version).

To be precise, this shows how to start coding on Ancient Brain in the JavaScript programming language, using the Three.js library for the graphics. (You can use other libraries for graphics, notably P5.)

On Ancient Brain, you can edit and run programs in the browser, with no install. You have to register and get a username if you want to save your creations.
