Since Polygonjs can be used both in the Web App and Local App, it may be tricky to know which one is best for you.

In short:

  • if you want to try it out quickly -> use the Web App.
  • if you want to do proper work, save your files locally, import assets, create your own nodes, use the API, use git to version your scene files -> use the Local App.
