Croquet

Croquet is a software system for creating multiuser digital experiences on the web. It lets you build real-time multiuser apps without writing a single line of server code, or deploying or managing any servers. Croquet consists of a JavaScript library that grants access to our global network of public reflectors. These reflectors provide seamless cross-platform real-time interactivity to any user with a network connection and a web browser.
  • The Croquet Library has everything to get you started
  • Here's a blog post about How Croquet Works by our Chief Architect Vanessa Freudenberg
  • Vanessa also gave a Keynote Speech at the Dynamic Languages Symposium in 2020
  • Also check out this Video Tutorial our engineers gave to the AR/VR Capstone Class 2021 at UW's Reality Lab

Higher-level Frameworks

While Croquet itself is independent of any specific UI framework, we provide our own frameworks that build on top of it.

  • The Croquet Virtual DOM is a high-level framework that extends the core capabilities of Croquet. It’s a set of tools for writing Croquet applications that use a browser’s DOM as multiuser interface elements. Yoshiki Ohshima gave a talk on Croquet and the live programming functionality built into the Virtual DOM Framework. The talk was in Japanese but you can turn on the English subtitles.

  • The Croquet React bindings is a simple framework for using Croquet together with React.js. It allows to write the Croquet's View side code in React that works with the Croquet Model code.

  • Worldcore is an entity-management system that sits on top of Croquet. It makes it easier to wrangle large numbers of 3d objects in a multiuser app.
