GLGE is a programming library for use with WebGL and JavaScript.

GLGE is a JavaScript library intended to ease the use of WebGL, a native browser JavaScript API giving direct access to OpenGL ES 2, allowing for the use of hardware accelerated 2D and 3D applications without having to download any plugins.

The aim of GLGE is to mask the involved nature of WebGL from the web developer, who can then spend their time creating richer content for the web.
