  • bgfx

    Cross-platform, graphics API agnostic, "Bring Your Own Engine/Framework" style rendering library.

    Project mention: Tools for rolling your own engine | reddit.com/r/gamedev | 2022-05-16

    bgfx seems interesting if you aren't going to use SFML. Gets you rendering.

  • magnum

    Lightweight and modular C++11 graphics middleware for games and data visualization

  • glslViewer

    Console-based GLSL Sandbox for 2D/3D shaders shaders

    Project mention: glslViewer on Pocketchip: unable to load driver: sun4i-drm_dri.so | reddit.com/r/ChipCommunity | 2022-01-13

    Hey, I'm pretty new to the chip and wanted to explore to possibilites of it as an on the go programming gameboy of sorts. I managed to compile glslViewer on it and it starts, except with a bunch of errors:

  • WebGui

    An example demo of IMGUI (Immediate Mode GUI) on the web. Using only WebGL, GLFW and ImGui. Suitable for being compiled to web assembly (WASM).

    Project mention: 23,000 Devices ShippedFlipper Zero | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-05-13

    My next app will be C++/Qt compiled to Javascript with Emscripten and then run inside Electron.

    (Incidentally, someone made a Dear Imgui demo this way: https://jnmaloney.github.io/WebGui/imgui.html, minus involving Electron, of course.)

  • borealis

    Hardware accelerated, controller and TV oriented UI library for PC and Nintendo Switch (libnx)

  • Physics3D

    A 3D physics engine

    Project mention: Do you have any examples of decent projects written in C++? | reddit.com/r/cpp_questions | 2022-05-04
  • scop_vulkan

    A 3D model viewer written C++20 and Vulkan

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • bigger

    bigg (bgfx + imgui + glfw + glm) + utils

    Project mention: Mach Engine: The Future of Graphics (With Zig) | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-18

    Everyone's building on the "bigg" (bgfx + imgui + glfw + glm) stack ;)


  • BunnyLOD

    Cross platform GLFW based port of Stan Melax's BunnyLOD Easy Mesh Simplification

    Project mention: help implementing LOD edge collapse algorithm | reddit.com/r/GraphicsProgramming | 2021-11-28

    You might want to take a look at Stan Melax's easy mesh simplification technique with edge collapse at http://www.melax.com/polychop (read the full article link) - I've ported the code so it runs cross platform on https://github.com/dougbinks/BunnyLOD

  • Spatial.Engine

    [WIP] Spatial is a cross-platform C++ game engine.

    Project mention: Spatial Engine is a cross-platform C++ game engine. | reddit.com/r/u_Remarkable-Donut-863 | 2022-01-28
