I am exploring how to use carto.js map in a web application. I had seen couple of samples where carto.JS is used and some of them used cartoDB by including a supporting js file in the document.

What is the difference between carto.js and cartoDB?


CartoDB is the former name of CARTO.

The javascript library file for CARTO.js ẁas called cartodb.js in versions < 4. Nowadays it is called carto.js.

Your other samples were from before the name change.
