  • Using WGPU + crates directly or Bevy?
    1 project | /r/rust_gamedev | 4 Jul 2022
    You could start with one of examples from wgpu and tinker with it to see if that's your thing. Ie. copy hello-triangle and add more triangles / make them move, etc.
  • gfx-rs ecosystem releases v0.8

    wgpu-rs (https://github.com/gfx-rs/wgpu-rs) is probably closer to what you're looking for, it's a "high level wrapper" over wgpu-core (Which implements "WebGPU", an upcoming browser API for graphics using gfx-rs, and AIUI "implements" means this is what a browser might use to actually call a graphics API when javascript uses webGPU, although if you're compiling for wasm it could just call the browser APIs). It can run natively, ignore the fact it has "Web" in the name

    rust-gpu) is used for compiling a compute shader written in Rust to SPIR-V. wgpu-rs is used natively for running the GPU computation.

  • Bevy 0.5
    14 projects | /r/rust | 6 Apr 2021
    For web assembly there is the unofficial bevy_webgl2 plugin. Official bevy web assembly support would probably use the wgpu webgl backend, which still needs some work, and is currently untested in bevy.
  • Bevy 0.5: data oriented game engine built in Rust
    10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 6 Apr 2021
    We let wgpu https://github.com/gfx-rs/wgpu-rs handle our graphics backend abstraction, so our OpenGL support will come whenever they implement and release it. Currently, it seems to be a WIP.

    It's the same thing, the Rust implementation is just called[wgpu](https://wgpu.rs/)
  • Last big wgpu-rs example shaders are fully ported to WGSL now, and validated in it
    6 projects | /r/rust_gamedev | 30 Mar 2021
    Same as with GLSL, isn't it? What we do in wgpu-rs examples, and that's something I expect to see more widely, is having an integration test that just parses all the WGSL in the project and reports errors. Ideally though, we'd have a set of IDE plugins to do the parsing and report errors right where you type the code. We'd appreciate any help to get these started!

    Also you could use an existing cross-platform graphics library, e.g. wgpu-rs. It supports Vulkan, Metal, DirectX, OpenGL and WebGPU. Oh and it seems to allow switching backends at compile-time via the WGPU_BACKEND environment variable, so maybe check out how they're doing it.
