Welcome to bracket-lib
You can read a tutorial series on writing a Roguelike with this library at: https://bfnightly.bracketproductions.com/rustbook/
What happened to RLTK?
This is RLTK, renamed because it is increasingly finding usage outside of just Roguelikes. It's also been divided into a number of crates, to make it easy to pick-and-choose the features you need.
bracket-liband re-exports in the
rltk::preludenamespace. This preserves compatibility with all existing RLTK projects.
bracket-algorithm-traitsexposes the traits required for the various algorithm systems in other crates.
bracket-coloris my RGB/HSV color management system.
bracket-geometryexposes various geometric primitives and helpers. Supports other crates.
bracket-noiseis a port of Auburn's FastNoise to Rust.
bracket-pathfindingprovides a high-performance A* (A-Star) pathing system, as well as Dijkstra maps.
bracket-randomis a dice-oriented random number generator, including parsing of RPG-style dice strings such as
Cargo.toml file, include:
[dependencies] bracket-lib = "0.7"
There are a few feature flags designed to aide integration with other systems:
bracket-libsub-systems to export important primitives as having Specs'
bracket-libsub-systems to support using
threadedenables multi-threading on some sub-systems.
bracket-lib runs in OpenGL mode (or WebGL if it detects that you are compiling for
wasm32-unknown-unknown). If you want to use other rendering back-ends, disable default features and apply one of the following feature flags:
amethyst_engine_vulkanfor Amethyst support, in
amethyst_engine_metalfor Amethyst support, in
crosstermto use the excellent
pdcursessupport depending upon your platform.
