How to contribute

How to build & run examples

To build the examples, you need Rust and Cargo installed.

  1. Install Rust
  2. In the Terminal window, navigate to the project directory of the example you want to build.
  3. Type cargo build
  4. Type cargo run --bin hello_world


  • I get ld: library not found for -lSDL2 error on OSX

  • 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 for an example.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
