Description Kenneth Russell 2019-06-17 17:58:35 PDT
The ANGLE project in ThirdParty/ANGLE contains (nearly) all of the validation needed to make conformant WebGL 1.0 and 2.0 implementations with minimal code; largely just wrapping ANGLE's objects as WebGLObjects. ANGLE is supported on all of the platforms used by WebKit's ports - or, at least, should be. Patches will be welcomed into the ANGLE project supporting it on more platforms.

This meta-bug tracks using ANGLE as the backend for WebKit's WebGL implementation, and ideally, removal of GraphicsContext3DOpenGL and GraphicsContext3DOpenGLES.
