Image of ODE


ODE is an high performance library for simulating rigid body dynamics, it has advanced joint types and integrated collision detection with friction. ODE is useful for simulating vehicles, objects in virtual reality environments and virtual creatures.

Russell Smith is the original author of ODE.

New in V1.1.0 :

Since V1.1.0, ODE is compiled to WebAssembly through emscripten, this adds an asynchronous step, the API add a promise wich is resolved when ODE engine is ready!

    <script src="node_module/odejs/lib/libode.js"></script>
    ODE.readyPromise.then(function() {

            var world = new ODE.World();

Installation :

npm install odejs
