WebGL demos, references, and resources

Here's a list of WebGL resources that will help you learn and create great 2D and 3D graphics.

Microsoft websites

Demos

  • Lookaround A cool Three.js based demo where you can view a waterfront boardwalk in 360 degrees.
  • Flight to Everest Find your base camp, check ice flows, and scale heights with this 3D demo.
  • Warp The full version of the trimmed down demo presented here.

Reference content

  • WebGL API reference Reference pages for the WebGL API supported by Internet Explorer 11.
  • GLSL errors pages for the WebGL and GLSL features supported by IE11.

Third-party websites

Learning sites

Libraries

  • Three.js One of the most widely used general purpose WebGL libraries.
  • GLMatrix A commonly used library to simplify using matrices.
  • PhiloGL A framework for game development, data visualization, and creative coding.
  • GLGE: WebGL for the lazy A general purpose library that abstracts graphics and 3D concepts.
  • Babylon.js A general purpose library with an emphasis on gaming.

The full example

For this WebGL discussion, we've used snippets of code from a larger example. Here's the complete code listing. There are two files, demo.js and default.html. We've combined the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) portion with the HTML file, while it's a separate file in the Warp sample.

This is the default.html file
