Another month of WebCL. Do you have anything to share, let us know in the comments. It is ok, if the news are not from October, as we are doing some catch-up.

You might have seen at the first post that the creator of LearningWebGL, Giles Thomas, has approved of this website: “Excellent, really glad to see this started!”. Now continue and hope the website can do for WebCL, what LearningWebGL did for WebGL.




  • CrowdCL, a framework for crowdsourcing GPU-based computational problems.
  • Superconductor is a web framework for creating data visualizations that scale to real-time interactions with up to 1,000,000 data points. It compiles┬áto WebCL, WebGL, and web workers to unleash the power of parallel hardware for fast and cross-platform data visualization.
  • Node.js has several plugins for WebCL/OpenCL. Go check them out.

Browser Plugins

  • Firefox support is now supported on FF 24. You might have heard the buyout of Nokia by Microsoft. The WebCL project at Nokia-research is completely safe.
  • A lot of bugs in the plugin for Chromium (OSX 10.8.3 and Linux) have been splatted. No binaries available yet.

    Hi there, good to find another site to promote WebCL. I just released an update to my WebGL/WebCL fractal studio site http://fract.ured.me which should work in WebKit-WebCL now (with thanks to Alexandre Rocha and Marcelo Morais for help with this).
    Using the handy wrapper library at https://github.com/alerock/libwebcl which is useful to hide inconsistencies between WebCL implementations.
    Would be great to hear about it if anyone has trouble getting Fractured working as it’s hard to get access to the multitude of possible hardware/platform/browser combinations to test on.
