Try any Node.js package right in your browser

This is a playground to test code. It runs a full Node.js environment and already has all of npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including glsl-specular-blinn-phong with all npm packages installed. Try it out:

glsl-specular-blinn-phong lists no main file and has no index.js, so it can't be directly required. If this is a mistake, please let us know. It may however contain internal files that you can require manually:

// require("glsl-specular-blinn-phong/[??]")

glsl-specular-blinn-phong v1.0.2

Blinn-Phong specular effect


Computes the Blinn-Phong specular weight for a light source


#pragma glslify: blinnPhongSpec = require(glsl-specular-blinn-phong)

uniform vec3 eyePosition;
uniform vec3 lightPosition;

uniform float shininess;

varying vec3 surfacePosition;
varying vec3 surfaceNormal;

void main() {
  vec3 eyeDirection = normalize(eyePosition - surfacePosition);
  vec3 lightDirection = normalize(lightPosition - surfacePosition);
  vec3 normal = normalize(surfaceNormal);

  float power = blinnPhongSpec(lightDirection, eyeDirection, normal, shininess);

  gl_FragColor = vec4(power,power,power,1.0);


Install with npm:

npm install glsl-specular-blinn-phong

Then use with glslify.


#pragma glslify: blinnPhong = require(glsl-specular-blinn-phong)
float blinnPhong(vec3 lightDir, vec3 eyeDir, vec3 normal, float shininess)

Computes the specular power in the Blinn-Phong lighting model.

  • lightDir is a unit length vec3 pointing from the surface point toward the light
  • eyeDir is a unit length vec3 pointing from the surface point toward the camera
  • normal is the surface normal at the sample point
  • shininess is the exponent in the Phong equation (default 20.0)

Returns A float representing the power of the Blinn-Phong lighting equation
