An OpenGL wrapper for Ruby. ruby-opengl contains bindings for OpenGL and the GLU and GLUT libraries.
Features and Problems
available for Windows, Linux, OS-X
require 'opengl' FIX (code sample of usage)
see github.com/larskanis/opengl/tree/0.7 for Ruby 1.8.x compatible branch
proper OpenGL, GLU and (free-)GLUT development files installed
gem install opengl --pre
After checking out the source, run:
$ rake newb
This task will install any missing dependencies, run the tests/specs, and generate the RDoc.
Cross compiling for Windows
Using rake-compiler a cross compiled opengl gem can be build on a Linux or MacOS X host for the win32 platform. The generated gem is statically linked against libfreeglut. Freeglut is downloaded and compiled from the sources. There are no runtime dependencies to any but the standard Windows DLLs.
Install mingw32 or w64 using the instructions in rake-compiler's README. For Debian/Ubuntu it is apt-get install gcc-mingw-w64 .
Download and cross compile ruby 1.9 for win32 with:
rake-compiler cross-ruby VERSION=1.9.3-p0
Download and cross compile opengl for win32:
rake cross native gem
or with custom versions:
rake cross native gem RUBY_CC_VERSION=1.9.3 LIBFREEGLUT_VERSION=2.8.0
If everything works, there should be ruby-opengl-VERSION-x86-mingw32.gem in the pkg directory.
