WebGL playground announced

WebGL playground lets you type in your WebGL script and see the results, all on the same page. The editor lets you work on the JavaScript code and the GLSL vertex/fragment shaders (if you have any) at the same time in a convenient way. Everything is organized, formatted and includes syntax highlighting. You can use arbitrary JavaScript libraries to create your effects, combine multiple fragment and vertex shaders, handle user input, and more.

WebGL Joint And Object Framework released

The Joint And Object (JOA) Framework is a set of javascript templates and a "class" so that beginners can make use of this technology without having to learn the lower level WebGL stuff. The JOA Framework is a combination of a template, support files, user data file, example files and manual. The template file and support files are all modified or unmodified versions of the files used in the WebGL tutorials on LearningWebGL.

MaximumPC publishes OpenCL and WebCL article

MaximumPC has published a brief history and review of OpenCL and WebCL in their January 2012 print magazine. A brief excerpt from the article "Support for OpenCL has been quite strong. AMD is so enamored of OpenCL that it dropped its ATI Stream SDK in favor of a new Accelerated Parallel Processing SDK, which exclusively supports OpenCL. OpenCL has also come to the web. A variant of OpenCL, called WebCL, is in the prototype stage for web browsers, which allows JavaScript to call OpenCL code. This means you may one day run GPU compute code inside your browser."

ReadyMap Web SDK leverages WebGL for 3D Maps

ReadyMap SDK is a free JavaScript library for embedding 3D maps in a web page. Build 3D maps using ReadyMap's API, or turn your OpenLayers or Leaflet maps into 3D globes. ReadyMap can display 3D map data as well, so you can plot terrain elevation, extruded features, and more. ReadyMap leverages WebGL technology to render high-performance 3D maps.

Daily.js Node round up:  node-webcl, node-webgl and node-glfw

Mikael Bourges-Sevenier has sent in three WebGL and WebCL modules that he’s written for Node. node-webcl from Motorola Mobility is an implementation of the Khronos WebCL working draft using Node. node-webgl is an implementation of the Khronos WebGL specification. node-glfw is a JavaScript wrapper around GLFW. This provides implementations, where possible, of WebGL methods on top of desktop OpenGL as well as a browser compliant event model.
