Getting Babylon.js to work in Android using Visual Studio & Apache Cordova

Recommended Posts

Visual Studio provides a nice environment for developing cross-platform apps. To do so you need to first install the Apache Cordova plug-in.  Once that's installed you can develop and debug your Babylon.js app using the Ripple Emulator which uses the latest Google Chrome).

The problem occurs when you want to deploy to an actual device, like an Android tablet or phone.  

If you're running anything less than Android Lollipop (< V5.0), your Babylon.js app won't work because it runs in a webview and older webviews to do not support WebGL.

The solution is to add CrossWalk to your Visual Studio project. In Visual Studio 15.0, the path is: Project > config.xml > Plugins > Core > Crosswalk Webview Engine (click the add button).

This didn't appear to work until I did a Rebuild All. After that, it deployed just fine.
