Cinder 0.9.1dev: libcinder.org

Cinder Logo



Welcome to the very experimental and unofficial port of Cinder to Emscripten. This is a 'for messing around with' port. It should not be used for production. Use at your own risk. :)

You can find some demos that have been built with Cinder Emscripten here: http://chaoticbob.github.io/Cinder-Emscripten.

You are welcome to report any issues here - on this repo. You are also welcome to make any Pull Requests against this repo.

Installing Emscripten

This requires the incoming version of Emscripten and CMake 3.1. It does not work with latest as far as I know. So grab the Emscripten portable SDK from here. Linux or OS X is hightly recommended! This has not been tested on Windows. Once you have it installed and are ready to go:

cd ${YOUR_EMSCRIPTEN_DIR}
./emsdk update
./emsdk install --build=Release sdk-incoming-64bit
./emsdk activate --build=Release sdk-incoming-64bit

Building Cinder

Source the emsdk_env.sh before you do anything:

source ${YOUR_EMSCRIPTEN_DIR}/emsdk_env.sh

Once that is done, you're ready to build:

cd ${YOUR_CINDER_DIR}/emscripten
./cibuild

This should fire off the build process using Clang 3.8 (or later).

Building BasicApp

Source the emsdk_env.sh before you do anything:

source ${YOUR_EMSCRIPTEN_DIR}/emsdk_env.sh

Once that is done, you're ready to build:

cd ${YOUR_CINDER_DIR}/samples/BasicApp/emscripten
./cibuild

Running BasicApp

Lets use the SimpleHTTPServer that comes with Python:

cd ${YOUR_CINDER_DIR}/samples/BasicApp/emscripten/Debug/es2
python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000

Now open up your browser and goto: http://localhost:8000 or ```http://127.0.0.1:8000``. Click on the BasicApp.html file. You should see BasicApp in your browser.

Building _opengl/Cube

Source the emsdk_env.sh before you do anything:

source ${YOUR_EMSCRIPTEN_DIR}/emsdk_env.sh

Once that is done, you're ready to build:

cd ${YOUR_CINDER_DIR}/samples/_opengl/Cube/emscripten
./cibuild

Running _opengl/Cube

Lets use the SimpleHTTPServer that comes with Python:

cd ${YOUR_CINDER_DIR}/samples/_opengl/Cube/emscripten/Debug/es2
python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000

Now open up your browser and goto: http://localhost:8000 or ```http://127.0.0.1:8000``. Click on the Cube.html file. You should see a spinning Cube in your browser.



FAQ

  • Which samples currently work?
  • Samples that can render using ES2 and do not have any direct hardware dependency.
  • Noticed that es is in the path for the samples - do any of the ES3 samples work?
  • Yes. You'll need to use FireFox nightly or Chrome Canary with WebGL2 enabled.
  • Does audio work?
  • Not yet. Feel free to make a PR.
  • Does video playback work?
  • Not yet. Feel free to make a PR.
  • What about all the stuff from the HTML5 api?
