    I just stumbled across this and am really liking it so far. You can edit the shader code in the book/site and get immediate feedback.


    Edit: This site is so promising then so frustrating I'm starting to wonder if it's a troll. It is unfinished. What is present is great, but what it promises isn't there.

    I just went through a frustrating journey of trying to build from the source because the hosted version just stops giving links or content after page 13 and there seems to be more info in the source code. But I think it is just unfinished, and all the parts that are unfinished are things I really really really want to read after experiencing what is finished, but I'm Googling around about this, and it's apparently been in this state for years now.

    It's a great intro, but it basically just completely hits a brick wall when it gets to the parts I want to use.

    And trying to build the site was frustrating as hell. I tend to want to build in isolation so as not to get a bunch of dependency-helled libraries on my systems. But it needs glslViewer which I couldn't make work headless in a Docker container. I finally went ahead and tried building on the Mac because I had most of what I needed, anyway, but what the project doesn't tell you that tripped me up hard for a bit is that it also expects ImageMagick and Pandoc to be present, and the error messages for that are near impossible to figure that out. I happened to know that the missing "convert" command belongs to ImageMagick from context and experience, and I had to dive into the build script to find that the other file it was missing was pandoc, and I knew from experience how that's used, too. And then I still wound up with the same result as the published website. :p

    I am, gradually. I've also just realized that most of the ones I copied from Pocket are redirect URLs that only I can follow :badcomp:
