WebGL JavaScript API

There is not a single document that describes WebGL. If you want the full details you have to reference two documents:

  • OpenGL ES 2.0.25 Specification: This is the official, full specification of the API for OpenGL embedded systems. The interface is not specific to any particular programming language, but it is based on “C like” languages.
  • WebGL Specification 1.0.3: WebGL access to the GPU is through the JavaScript language. This document explains the changes made to the OpenGL ES 2.0 specification to implement a JavaScript and browser based interface.
