Basic A-Frame Scene

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <script src=""></script>
      <a-box position="-1 0.5 -3" rotation="0 45 0" color="#4CC3D9"></a-box>
      <a-sphere position="0 1.25 -5" radius="1.25" color="#EF2D5E"></a-sphere>
      <a-cylinder position="1 0.75 -3" radius="0.5" height="1.5" color="#FFC65D"></a-cylinder>
      <a-plane position="0 0 -4" rotation="-90 0 0" width="4" height="4" color="#7BC8A4"></a-plane>
      <a-sky color="#ECECEC"></a-sky>

Primitives are similar to prefabs in Unity. They abstract the core entity-component API to:

  • Pre-compose useful components together with prescribed defaults

  • Act as a shorthand for complex-but-common types of entities (e.g., <a-sky>)

  • Provide a familiar interface for beginners since A-Frame takes HTML in a new direction
