If you want to integrate the core noVNC library into your project, you should check out the API documentation. To easily get the core library you can use NPM:

npm install @novnc/novnc
Please note that what's available on NPM is not the full noVNC client, it's only the core modules/library and is lacking a user application.


noVNC requires a browser with HTML5 support, this means it works on all major browsers but not on IE 10. See this wiki page for more details.

Get noVNC by cloning using Git:

$ git clone git://
or by downloading in either zip or tar formats.

Run a VNC server, run a WebSocket proxy that points to the VNC server, load the page, and connect! See the quick-start instructions in the project README for more details.
