Export webpage / self hosting

In order to host a Goo 3D Scene yourself, you need to export the scene as a webpage and put it on a web server.

  1. Open your scene in Create.
  2. Open the Scene menu in the top bar.
  3. Click Export.
  4. Choose Export as Webpage.

Wait for the scene to download as a zip-file. The contents of this file is ready to put on any web server.

Running the exported webpage locally

To run the exported webpage locally, you need to use a local web server. It will not work by just opening index.html file in a browser.

We recommend using Node.js to start a web server locally. Follow these steps.

  1. Install Node.js.
  2. Open the command prompt to run following commands.
    • Windows: Open Start and write cmd into the search and press enter.
    • Windows XP: Open Start and select Run and write cmd and press enter.
    • OSX: Open the Terminal app.
    • Linux: Open a new terminal.
  3. Run this command to install a server: npm install st -g
  4. Start the server by running: st /path/to/exported/webpage with a path to the folder you want to open.
  5. Now just open http://localhost:1337/ in your browser.
