ffi-opengl

by Andrea Fazzi
http://github.com/remogatto/ffi-opengl/

DESCRIPTION:

ffi-opengl is a ruby FFI interface towards OpenGL libraries (GL, GLU, GLUT) autogenerated using ffi-swig-generator (see LINKS below). The FFI layer ensures compatibility among all Ruby implementation that support it. At the moment, this means that you can run the same ffi-opengl script with MRI Ruby and JRuby (not tested on rubinius).

ffi-opengl API aims to be a 1:1 tranposition of the OpenGL C API: so don't expect idiomatic ruby inside!

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Full [auto-generated] wrap of the OpenGL libraries.

  • JRuby 1.3.0 compatible.

  • No need of opengl development libraries.

  • No compilation needed (once you have ruby-ffi installed or you are using JRuby).

  • Not yet tested on windows platform.

SYNOPSIS:

See the example in 'examples/' folder. For the API documentation please refer to OpenGL reference pages.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • ffi >= 0.3.0

  • OpenGL libraries >= 1.2
