If you are in a rush:

Download a binary release...

Get the Omegalib Installer for Windows

Get the Omegalib Installer for OSX

... Or Use the quick build scripts

You will need the following installed:

  • Git
  • CMake (
  • Python (the pre-installed 2.7 version on OSX and most linux distros works fine, on Windows omegalib comes with python bundled so you don't need this)
  • C++ Build tools for your platform (g++, clang/XCode, Visual Studio 2012/2013 depending on the OS). On windows, the free Visual Studio editions work fine.
  • (linux) The following packages
    • OpenGL development libraries (freeglut3, freeglut3-dev)
    • Python development libraries (python-dev)
    • Flex and bison (flex and bison)
    • To install all of them on Ubunto do sudo apt-get install freeglut3 freeglut3-dev python-dev flex bison xorg-dev libglu1-mesa-dev)


> mkdir omegalib
> cd omegalib
> (on LINUX) wget
> (on OSX)   curl -o omega
