Ultralight is a tool to display fast, beautiful HTML interfaces inside all kinds of applications.
Save time and money by writing your application's front-end with HTML while still retaining access to the power and performance of native C/C++ code.
Ultralight takes advantage of native hardware acceleration to offer best-in-class rendering performance across all platforms.
Build HTML desktop applications for Windows, macOS, and Linux with only a fraction of the size of Electron.
Use Ultralight to display beautiful, low-latency HTML interfaces in your next game or GPU-based application.
Deeply integrate your rendering pipeline with our portable GPUDriver API to take performance to the next level.Game Integration Guide
Use Ultralight to display or render offscreen HTML in a variety of applications and environments.
Use the low-level Platform API to take unprecedented control over file system access, font loading, rendering, and more.Browse the API
Ultralight supports most major desktop PC platforms. Specifically, Windows (7+, x64), macOS (Sierra or later), and Linux (Ubuntu/Debian 9.5+, x64).
We're currently porting Ultralight to Xbox One and PS4, with plans to port it to Android, ARM, and others soon after.
Ultralight supports most major websites out of the box (it's a custom fork of WebKit) but is not yet at parity with Chrome/Safari. You can track which features are still in progress here.
We recommend trying out the Browser sample to get an idea of what Ultralight is capable of today.
Possibly, Ultralight renders everything to virtual GPU command lists which you'll need to dispatch to whatever graphics API your engine uses. See the game integration overview.
We're working on official bindings for other languages (C# is priority) and there are also several community-maintained bindings available as well for Go and Rust. In the meantime you can use the C API as a bridge for porting to other languages.
