We present a software framework that facilitates the development of OpenGL applications utilizing the limited GPU capacities of a portable client in combination with the high-end rendering hardware on a server. The resulting webapplication uses standard technologies and can be run on a wide variety of devices, such as smart phones, tablets and laptops. The framework is designed to make it simple changing an existing OpenGL application into a web-application, gradually adding client-side rendering. Furthermore, it provides automatic network scaling to provide interactivity even on poor connections.
