libliftoff

builds.sr.ht status

Lightweight KMS plane library.

This project has moved

This project has moved to gitlab.freedesktop.org.

libliftoff eases the use of KMS planes from userspace without standing in your way. Users create "virtual planes" called layers, set KMS properties on them, and libliftoff will pick planes for these layers if possible.

Resources:

Building

Depends on libdrm. Requires universal planes and atomic.

meson build/
ninja -C build/

Usage

See liftoff.h and the example/ directory. See doc/compositor.md for compositor guidelines.

Here's the general idea:

struct liftoff_device *device;
struct liftoff_output *output;
struct liftoff_layer *layer;
drmModeAtomicReq *req;
int ret;

device = liftoff_device_create(drm_fd);
output = liftoff_output_create(device, crtc_id);

liftoff_device_register_all_planes(device);

layer = liftoff_layer_create(output);
liftoff_layer_set_property(layer, "FB_ID", fb_id);
/* Probably setup more properties and more layers */

req = drmModeAtomicAlloc();
ret = liftoff_output_apply(output, req);
if (ret < 0) {
	perror("liftoff_output_apply");
	exit(1);
}

ret = drmModeAtomicCommit(drm_fd, req, DRM_MODE_ATOMIC_NONBLOCK, NULL);
if (ret < 0) {
	perror("drmModeAtomicCommit");
	exit(1);
}
drmModeAtomicFree(req);
