WHAT IS GLGE?

GLGE is a javascript library intended to ease the use of WebGL; which is 
basically a native browser javascript API giving direct access to openGL 
ES2, allowing for the use of hardware accelerated 2D/3D applications 
without having to download any plugins.

The aim of GLGE is to mask the involved nature of WebGL from the web 
developer, who can then spend his/her time creating richer content for 
the web.

LICENSE

GLGE is made available under a BSD (3-point) style license

BUILDING GLGE

GLGE requires nodejs, to build simply:
> git submodule init
> git submodule update
>./build.js

For more options:
>./build.js --help

RUNNING THE EXAMPLES LOCALLY IN CHROME

Chrome doesn't  support cross-origin requests which means running from a 
file:/// url doesn't work. Here are some basic instructions for setting
up a local Apache host for running the GLGE examples.

Add a new entry in /etc/hosts:

    127.0.0.1       glge.local

Add an a new apache vhost:

    <VirtualHost glge.local:80>
       ServerName ometa-js
       DocumentRoot /path/to/glge/
       <Directory /path/to/glge-git>
         Options +Indexes +FollowSymLinks +MultiViews +Includes
         AllowOverride All
         Order allow,deny
         Allow from all
         DirectoryIndex index.htm
      </Directory>
    </VirtualHost>

Check the Apache configuration 'apachectl configtest' and if OK restart Apache.
