Install with npm

You can also install Cesium with npm.

The Cesium npm module includes everything you need for app development.

  • Source - A collection of modules that can be used with any AMD-aware loaders, such as requirejs, webpack, and browserify. This is our preferred development method and ideal for those who have embraced module-based web development.
  • Build/Cesium - Combined and minified Cesium.js and associated files, suitable for deploying an application.
  • Build/CesiumUnminified - Combined and unminified Cesium.js and associated files, along with extra error checking and validation, suitable for development.
