Shader Maker is a simple, cross-platform GLSL editor. It works on Windows, Linux, and macOS.
It provides the basic functionalities of a shader editor, such that students can get started with writing their own shaders as quickly as possible.
- Editors for vertex, fragment, and, optionally, geometry shader.
- Uniforms/attributes inspector (preliminary for the moment).
- Pre-defined uniforms for projection matrix, model-view matrix, time in ms since program start, bounding-box minimum and maximum.
- Pre-defined attributes for vertex locations and normals.
- Pre-defined geometries (plane, cube, sphere, torus, and teapot).
- Simple OBJ loader.
- texture loader.
- Changing OpenGL settings (background color, clear bits, alpha blending, backface culling, depth test, stencil test).
- uniforms editor
- UV coordinates as attribute
- using textures as input
- usage of custom uniform/attribute names
- custom attributes
- Qt 5+
