Babylon Native

Welcome! Babylon Native is a collection of technologies intended to bring the power and flexibility of Babylon.js to cross-platform applications beyond the browser. The goal of this project is to allow the same JavaScript that powers Babylon.js apps on the Web to work identically in native apps on Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, and Linux.

Check out the home page for a project overview.

Project Status

Babylon Native is currently available as a public preview in source form only. While many features are supported and functional, there are still features that are under active development. Please note that this project is not at the point where updates are fully backwards compatibility yet, and thus the contract for consuming Babylon Native can still and probably will change in the future.

What is Supported from Babylon.js

Babylon.js has many, many features; and while the goal of Babylon Native is to support an overwhelming majority of those features, not all parts of Babylon.js are equally well supported by Babylon Native at this time. This section is intended to help readers "eyeball it," checking quickly whether a given type of feature is likely supported by Babylon Native at this time. For more precise information about current and upcoming support for particular features, please don't hesitate to ask us on the forum.


Many core features from Babylon.js are supported. Here is a non-exhaustive list.

  • 3D Assets (glTF, OBJ, etc.)
  • Animations
  • Behaviors
  • Cameras
  • Gizmos
  • Materials
  • Meshes
  • Lights
  • Physics
  • Scenes
  • Shaders
  • Sprites
