If you have a browser with WebGL you can run the benchmarks here.
This work is based on Brandon's work as of this commit:
e5ad8f6975eef038de668914a44ed36e2c611966 Date: October 10, 2010 12:49:00 PM EDT Upped version to 0.9.5
Comparing these matrix libraries:
- glMatrix, zlib license
- mjs, MIT license
- EWGL_math, New BSD license
- tdl, New BSD license
- Closure Apache 2.0
Changes from Brandon's original benchmark code include:
- Only including the benchmark code from glmatrix.
- Updated to the latest mjs as of Dec 15: 16:8e5b0944ef1e and included it in several more tests.
- Added a graph display of the results using flotr, see: http://solutoire.com/flotr/
- Added tdl library (thanks to Gregg Tavares)
- each library runs in an iframe so the code won't affect the other libraries (thanks to Gregg Tavares)
Brandon's original code was released under the New BSD license. My additions to the benchmarking code are released under the same license.
Running locally requires a web server.
With the recent changes by Gregg Tavares that run each library in an iFrame you will need to either:
- Run the benchmarks from a local web server
- Configure the browser to allow local file access
Configuring Chrome to allow local file access
On Windows you can add a flag in the shortcut.
On Mac OS X start Chrome from the command line like this:
/Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --allow-file-access-from-files
Using Python's SimpleHTTPServer
cd /path/to/webgl-matrix-benchmarks python -m SimpleHTTPServer
Set up an webgl-matrix-benchmarks.local local host and Apache vhost on Mac OS X
On OS X, turn on Web Sharing via (Apple Menu) -> System Preferences -> Sharing -> Web Sharing
Now, make sure that virtual hosting is enabled by editing
/private/etc/apache2/httpd.conf and uncommenting the
virtual hosting line (at about line 465 of the stock
httpd.conf) as follows:
# Virtual hosts Include /private/etc/apache2/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf
At the top of httpd-vhosts.conf enable name-based virtual hosts for port 80 on all interfaces:
Edit the virtual hosting configuration file
/private/etc/apache2/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf to include the entry:
<VirtualHost webgl-matrix-benchmarks.local:80> ServerName webgl-matrix-benchmarks DocumentRoot /path/to/webgl-matrix-benchmarks PassengerEnabled off <Directory /path/to/webgl-matrix-benchmarks > Options +Indexes +FollowSymLinks +MultiViews +Includes AllowOverride All Order allow,deny Allow from all DirectoryIndex matrix_benchmark.html </Directory> </VirtualHost>
after making changes test the config:
When the configuration syntax is correct restart apache:
sudo apachectl restart
If there are issues try tailing the general apache2 error log:
tail -n 200 -f /var/log/apache2/error_log
For more instructions, set http://shapeshed.com/journal/setting_up_local_websites_on_snow_leopard/.
And, finally, edit your
/etc/hosts file to include the following line:
Confirm that the new entry works:
$ dscacheutil -q host -a name webgl-matrix-benchmarks.local name: webgl-matrix-benchmarks.local ip_address: 127.0.0.1
It might be necessary to flush the local DNS cache:
$ sudo dscacheutil -flushcache
Now open: http://webgl-matrix-benchmarks.local/
