    Learn the basics of WebGL in small, manageable chunks. The sequel to shader-school, created for CampJS IV by Mikola Lysenko and Hugh Kennedy.

    Running This Thing

    First, you need to get a browser with WebGL, as well as a copy of node.js and git. Once you have all of that set up, you can install the workshop using npm, which is included with node:

    sudo npm install -g webgl-workshop

    After that completes, you should be able to run the workshopper with the command:


    The script will ask you if you want to create an answer directory, press y to accept. This will populate your current directory with shader files for you to edit for each lesson.
