langterm - 🕹️ WebGL-based VT220 emulator, made as a learning example and frontend for a text adventure

  •        49

This is a WebGL-based VT220 emulator with a simple fallback for non-JS/non-WebGL/non-desktop browsers. Made as a learning example and frontend for a cute text adventure game. Also used as my home page on, hence the extra files.

glslEditor - Simple WebGL Fragment Shader Editor

  •    Javascript

Friendly GLSL Shader editor based on Codemirror compatible with glslViewer (C++/OpenGL ES) and glslCanvas (JS/WebGL). Was originaly develop to work as a embebed editor for The Book of Shaders. But now have grown as a stand alone Web app. Thanks to their compatibility with other apps of this ecosystems like glslViewer that runs in the RaspberryPi directly from console, GlslEditor interact with other projects like allowing the user to export the shaders to frames with only one button.

glslCanvas - Simple tool to load GLSL shaders on HTML Canvas using WebGL

  •    Javascript

GlslCanvas is JavaScript Library that helps you easily load GLSL Fragment and Vertex Shaders into an HTML canvas. I have used this in my Book of Shaders and glslEditor. That's all! glslCanvas will automatically load a WebGL context in that <canvas> element, compile the shader and animate it for you.

glsl-optimizer - GLSL optimizer based on Mesa's GLSL compiler

  •    C++

A C++ library that takes GLSL shaders, does some GPU-independent optimizations on them and outputs GLSL or Metal source back. Optimizations are function inlining, dead code removal, copy propagation, constant folding, constant propagation, arithmetic optimizations and so on. Apparently quite a few mobile platforms are pretty bad at optimizing shaders; and unfortunately they also lack offline shader compilers. So using a GLSL optimizer offline before can make the shader run much faster on a platform like that. See performance numbers in this blog post.

awesome-webgl - A curated list of awesome WebGL libraries, resources and much more


This is a curated list of awesome WebGL libraries, resources and much more. WebGL (Web Graphics Library) is a JavaScript API for rendering interactive 3D computer graphics and 2D graphics within any compatible web browser without the use of plug-ins. WebGL is integrated completely into all the web standards of the browser allowing GPU accelerated usage of physics and image processing and effects as part of the web page canvas.

Blotter - A JavaScript API for drawing unconventional text effects on the web.

  •    Javascript

A JavaScript API for drawing unconventional text effects on the web. When applying effects to text on the web, designers have traditionally been constrained to those provided by CSS. In the majority of cases this is entirely suitable – text is text right? Yet still, there exist numerous examples of designers combining CSS properties or gifs and images to create effects that evoke something more playful. Precisely here, Blotter exists to provide an alternative.

IF Wiki - Interactive Fiction Wiki Games

IF Wiki lets anybody create (and play) Adventure Games online. It combines Wikis with Interactive Fiction, so players can also author games. The technologies involved are MVC, Markdown and JQuery.

glslify - :sparkles: A node.js-style module system for GLSL!

  •    Javascript

It forms one of the core components of the ecosystem, allowing you to install GLSL modules from npm and use them in your shaders. This makes it trivial to piece together different effects and techniques from the community, including but certainly not limited to fog, noise, film grain, raymarching helpers, easing functions and lighting models. A full list can be found on the packages list under the "Shader Components" category.

wireframe-world - An infinite wireframe world in WebGL

  •    Javascript

As for the implementation, it is not very difficult stuff; I divide up the world into chunks(just like in Minecraft), and as the camera traverses the world, the chunks that become out of range are thrown away and are no longer rendered. And in the far away horizon I keep adding new chunks, to give the illusion that the world is infinite. Port the program into screensavers for OS X, Windows and Linux.

The aim of this project is to provide a fast lightweight 2D library that works across all devices. The PixiJS renderer allows everyone to enjoy the power of hardware acceleration without prior knowledge of WebGL. Also, it's fast. Really fast. PixiJS is a rendering library that will allow you to create rich, interactive graphics, cross platform applications, and games without having to dive into the WebGL API or deal with browser and device compatibility.

undum - A client-side framework for narrative hypertext interactive fiction.

  •    Javascript

Undum is a game framework for building a sophisticated form of hypertext interactive fiction. If that means nothing to you, then let's go back a few steps. Remember those Choose Your Own Adventure, or Fighting Fantasy books? Where you got to choose what your character does next? Well if you think of that in a web-page you have hypertext interactive fiction, or HIF. Instead of turning to a particular page, you click a link, and the next bit of content appears.

gamma - glsl shaders made simple

  •    Clojure

Gamma is a substrate for graphics software, such as games and data visualization tools. It presents a simple, composable language for representing GLSL shaders. Technically, Gamma is an EDSL that hosts GLSL within Clojurescript. It is inspired by Carlos Scheidegger's Lux and Conal Elliot's Vertigo and Pan. Gamma targets the WebGL subset of the OpenGL ES 1.0 Shading Language. Gamma can be used a la carte to compile shader source, without adopting Clojure/Clojurescript for your runtime application.

This repository hosts gl-react v3. For gl-react v2, please see ProjectSeptemberInc/gl-react. gre/gl-react repository is a complete rewrite of ProjectSeptemberInc/gl-react library (gl-react v2). It plans to be the gl-react v3. We keep both repository at same time because (1) this work is not yet finished and (2) this repository is now a "multi libraries" repository (it's just easier to maintain that way).

webgl-fundamentals - WebGL lessons that start with the basics

  •    HTML

This is a series of lessons or tutorials about WebGL. Unlike most WebGL lessons these are not based off of OpenGL. OpenGL is 20 years old. The lessons of OpenGL don't match well with WebGL. The APIs have changed too much. The ideas of OpenGL and OpenGL tutorials are out of date with WebGL, OpenGL ES 2.0 and the land of shaders.
