Configurable Unity Shaders

Access otherwise hidden shader features to understand them

openupm Unity 5.6 or later Built-In Render Pipeline

Don't repeat yourself by writing the same shaders over and over again with little variation. You can expose a lot of different shader settings through attributes! Configurable Shaders does three main things:

  1. Provide unlit and lit shaders for Opaque, Cutout and Transparent RenderTypes with a lot of configuration.
  2. Provide new useful Material Property Drawers and Debug Shaders
  3. Document the hidden features of shaders, that are not that apparent from the Unity Docs.
