Is it possible to use babylonjs with other webgl framework ?


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

As I don't know webgl and html5 deep enough, I wonder if it's possible to use babylonjs and other webgl framework  on the same page (and same canvas).

It seems like this not possible to do as each framework has its own rendering engine, but someone please confirm this.

Another possibility is create 2 canvases, and dedicate each one for babylonjs and other framework. Same html page though. Is it viable ?

In particular the framework I would like to use is the mapbox geo api (https://www.mapbox.com/mapbox-gl-js/api).

Essentially this would add mapping functionality to your babylonjs app.

Thank you!

Hello, babylon.js can be initialized on the same gl context as any other webgl framework

You do this by creating the engine like this:

var engine = new BABYLON.Engine(context)

But beware: as Babylon.js relies a lot on cache for performance reason, you will have to make sure to call engine.wipeCaches(true) everytime Babylon.js will render a frame
