The original version formed part of my university work, and as such was written in C++, and designed to display a similar scene using GDI+ in Windows.
The original version included directional lighting, which I am yet to implement in this version; at this stage I was more concerned with getting a basic scene rendering than adding additional features.
My next task with this is to improve the rendering speed; performance is generally fine in wireframe mode but introducing flat shading drops the speed dramatically. There's a veritable bucket list of features I could theoretically add, but I feel a little bit of optimisation at this point would probably help it feel more "useful".
I have mainly made this port to assist with my learning of a wider variety of languages, and as such I make no guarantees or promises as to its function. What you see is, indeed, what you get! :)
The main logic is stored in
main.js, with the Sylvester math library providing the necessary functions and types. jQuery is also a requirement; the index.html file will grab this from the Google CDN.
