Thanks Jamis for the great book! I've been implementing the ray tracer in C++ to get some practice, and thought I'd learn some webdev while I'm at it.
So out my ray tracer running entirely in your web browser here: iliathoughts.com/posts/raytracer/. Some more description and a link to the code is there. I think my yaml loader should load scene descriptions used in the book and on this sub. Let me know if I've messed anything up.
Hey guys, just an update on this. Ive implemented up to chapter 15 and have a few scenes you can select from a dropdown now. Groups are working, so it renders the Christmas tree scene in reasonable time! It will even render on my phone!
