    I'm looking for something that's relatively low-level (not a game engine) but preferably abstracts some of the boilerplate away and is cross-platform. Something like go-bgfx would have been perfect for me, but it has been long abandoned. The only real remaining option appears to be the glfw-bindings go-gl/glfw. Otherwise, I could make use of cgo to wrap some c/c++ code myself. I'm somewhat hesitant to go with glfw, because openGL isn't supported on all platforms (but realistically, I'm not going to publish anything that needs to go on mobile), and doesn't support raytracing, which I eventually want to mess around with too.
