What is GLGE?

GLGE is a javascript library intended to ease the use of WebGL; which is basically a native browser javascript API giving direct access to openGL ES2, allowing for the use of hardware accelerated 2D/3D applications without having to download any plugins.

The aim of GLGE is to mask the involved nature of WebGL from the web developer, who can then spend his/her time creating richer content for the web.

Lines and points in GLGE

October 6th, 2010

Sorry I’ve been neglecting the blog a bit recently but rest assured work goes on :-) So this is probably one of the most requested features and it’s been a long time coming rendering points and lines in GLGE. You can now specify an object to render as lines in GLGE simply by setting the render type on the object:
myObject.setDrawType(GLGE.DRAW_LINES);
myObject.setDrawType(GLGE.DRAW_TRIS);
myObject.setDrawType(GLGE.DRAW_LINELOOPS);
myObject.setDrawType(GLGE.DRAW_LINESTRIPS);
myObject.setDrawType(GLGE.DRAW_POINTS);
with points you can specify the size with:
myObject.setPointSize(10);
