How to create a 360 image viewer step by step

Step 1 — Creating a New Project

In this step, we need to create a new project folder and files(index.html, style.css, main.js) for creating a 360 image viewer. In the next step, you will start creating the structure of the webpage.

Step 2 — Setting Up the basic structure

In this step, we will add the HTML code to create the basic structure of the project.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>How to display a 360 image in HTML?</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css">
</head>
<body>
    
</body>
</html>

This is the base structure of most web pages that use HTML.

Add the following code inside the <body> tag:

<div id="panorama-360-view"></div>

Step 3 — Add Pannellum library and main js file

<!-- Pannellum library -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/pannellum/2.5.6/pannellum.css"
        integrity="sha512-UoT/Ca6+2kRekuB1IDZgwtDt0ZUfsweWmyNhMqhG4hpnf7sFnhrLrO0zHJr2vFp7eZEvJ3FN58dhVx+YMJMt2A=="
        crossorigin="anonymous" referrerpolicy="no-referrer" />

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/pannellum/2.5.6/pannellum.js"
        integrity="sha512-EmZuy6vd0ns9wP+3l1hETKq/vNGELFRuLfazPnKKBbDpgZL0sZ7qyao5KgVbGJKOWlAFPNn6G9naB/8WnKN43Q=="
        crossorigin="anonymous" referrerpolicy="no-referrer"></script>
<!-- End Pannellum library -->
<script src="main.js"></script>

Method 2: You can download Pannellum officially -> Get CDN

Step 4 — Adding Styles for the Classes

In this step, we will add styles to the section class Inside style.css file

* {
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
}

#panorama-360-view {
    width: 100vw;
    height: 100vh;
}

Step 5 — Adding Js Code

In the final step we have to do code for main.js

pannellum.viewer('panorama-360-view', {
    "type": "equirectangular",
    "panorama": "https://i.ibb.co/6PGHKkT/360-image.jpg",
