Embedding nanoMeet on your own web page

You can embed the following code snippet to test nanoMeet on your page in no time. It is a recommended example and runs on any web page.


To make this code snippet run, you need to create a new nanoMeet room first.
Execute this step via the nanoMeet web API using the method createNanoMeetRoom or using our nanoMeet Token Creator (Online Sample).
Both approaches will generate a new secure invite token that can be used to enter a nanoMeet room.

// Code to embed a nanoMeet meeting room on a web page
<div id="nanoStream-meet"></div>
<script src=""></script>
<!-- The div element the nanoMeet room will be embedded into -->
var nanoMeet = new NanoMeet(); // Instance of the nanoMeet web API
var token = "SECURE-TOKEN" // Your secure invite token

// Initialization of the nanoMeet player
document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function () {
nanoMeet.init({ token, id: "nanoStream-meet" })
.then((success) => {
console.log("nanoMeet setted up...", success);
}).catch((error) => {
console.log("Error setting up nanoMeet", error);
