Introducing Gthree

I’ve recently been working on OpenGL support in Gtk+, and last week it landed in master. However, the demos we have are pretty lame and are not very good to show off or even test the OpenGL support. I’ve looked around for some open source demos that used modern GL that we could use, but I didn’t find anything that we could easily use. What I did find though, was a lot of WebGL demos that used three.js. This looked like a very nice open source library for highlevel 3d rendering. At first I had some plans to bind OpenGL to gjs so that we could run three.js, but this turned out to be a hard. Instead I started converting three.js into C + GObject, using the Gtk+ OpenGL support and the vector/matrix library graphene that Emmanuele has been working on recently. Read more
