This is a repository for examples of Piston projects that have are accompanied by written tutorials explaining core concepts for that tutorial.
A "tutorial" with instructions on compiling and running a very simple Piston.
Sudoku (work in progress)
Write a Sudoku game with Piston.
I get "GL context creation failed" when running an example.
It's likely your hardware or driver doesn't support PistonWindow's default OpenGl spec. Just change it to something you can support at the beginning of the example. See hello_world.rs for an example.
Making changes to the tutorials
Because most of the tutorials will contain heavy amounts of
code, TyOverby developed a markdown pre-processor that takes
readme.dev.md files and includes code from the surrounding
project. This way you don't need to make a change in the code
for the tutorial and then also make the same change in the
readme.md file; the preprocessor will do that for you!
In order to run the pre-processor, simply invoke
from the root directory (not the sub-tutorial directory) and
it will rebuild all the markdown files that it knows about.
