Go-SDL provides bindings for the SDL, SDL_image, SDL_mixer, and SDL_ttf libraries.



To install all of the relevant libraries, use the following:

go get github.com/banthar/Go-SDL/sdl
go get github.com/banthar/Go-SDL/ttf
go get github.com/banthar/Go-SDL/gfx
go get github.com/banthar/Go-SDL/mixer

If you don't have write permission for GOPATH/GOROOT, you may need to run the previous command as root. If you get errors while trying to run it using sudo, it's possible that the GOROOT/GOOS/GOARCH/GOBIN variables are not available to the make command. You can try using '-E' to preserve the environment:

sudo -E go get github.com/banthar/Go-SDL/sdl
sudo -E go get github.com/banthar/Go-SDL/ttf
sudo -E go get github.com/banthar/Go-SDL/gfx
sudo -E go get github.com/banthar/Go-SDL/mixer

It's also possible to install just using make:

make install


sudo -E make install


To import, use the following:

import "github.com/banthar/Go-SDL/sdl"

Replace the final 'sdl' with the library that you want to import.
