JavaScript and TypeScript (Node.js)

In order to use the library you need to install Node.js. You can verify this by entering the following command into a terminal:

node --version
# Example output:
# v10.15.0
npm --version
# Example output:
# 6.6.0

Create a new project and switch to that directory by entering the following commands into the terminal (replace example with your desired project directory):

mkdir example
cd example
npm init -y

Then install the library in the project directory:

npm install "@zaber/motion"

Create a file named "example.js" (replace example with your desired file name) to start writing code in JavaScript. Run the script by entering node example.js into a terminal.

Continue the Getting Started guide by initializing the library in your code.
