jmol rendering on the ipad

Since java is not supported on the ipad, when I access the sage notebook (useing Safari on my ipad), I can't run any queries that need jmol to render the results. Is there a work around for 3d rendering or is there any project in the dev community for replacing jmol in sage with another opengl renderer that is not Java based.

Thanks.

The Tachyon viewer option works, although this does not give you the ability to do live rotations. Try:

var('x,y')
plot3d(x^2+3*y^2,(x,-2,2),(y,-2,2),viewer='tachyon')

Another viewer that might work is canvas3d, but it's not working for me in the iPad Sage app. I'm not sure of the status of this viewer.

canvas3d does seem to work on sagenb.org, which uses Sage 5.3. Can you try using Safari on the iPad and see if it's only the app which doesn't work?

Ok. Something appears, but it doesn't look like the correct graph and won't rotate.

There is at least one student looking into that trac ticket...
