SPIRV-Cross is a tool designed for parsing and converting SPIR-V to other shader languages.


  • Convert SPIR-V to readable, usable and efficient GLSL
  • Convert SPIR-V to readable, usable and efficient Metal Shading Language (MSL)
  • Convert SPIR-V to readable, usable and efficient HLSL
  • Reflection API to simplify the creation of Vulkan pipeline layouts
  • Reflection API to modify and tweak OpDecorations
  • Supports "all" of vertex, fragment, tessellation, geometry and compute shaders.
