Mitigation efforts are underway to ensure that WorldWindJS based projects are insulated from the effects of the NASA WorldWind project suspension.
WorldWindJS is a fork of the popular Web WorldWind library from NASA (with contributions from ESA). This fork provides a release channel for builds based on the latest fixes and features from the WebWorldWind develop branch integrated with several enhancements from the WorldWind community.
WorldWindJS releases can be downloaded from GitHub or from npm. Of course, you can fork or clone this project and build the library yourself using the instructions in the README.
