  • C++ REST SDK

    The C++ REST SDK is a Microsoft project for cloud-based client-server communication in native code using a modern asynchronous C++ API design. This project aims to help C++ developers connect to and interact with services.

    Project mention: What is the industry standard today in C++ to deploy REST microservices in Kubernetes? | /r/cpp | 2023-09-06

    My favourite was Microsoft's cpprestsdk, but for some reason now is in maintenance mode, I don't know why, so it's hard to suggest it for new projects. A nice alternative is restc-cpp, that's has a good high-level interface, if this is what you want.

    Project mention: How can I use C++ libraries/SDKs? | /r/Cplusplus | 2023-06-07

    I have been using C++ for a while but never really touched on using a full on SDK and now I want to use this SDK from Valve but my issue is that it isn't clear to me how to use it. What I mean by this is that it comes with a lot of subdirectories and extra stuff but how can I make a hello world program and able to call functions from the header file included in this SDK? I have used .h files before so I understand how the linker and all that works but with such a robust SDK I am not getting how this works on VSCode or maybe that I shouldn't even be using VSCode?

  • compressonator

    Tool suite for Texture and 3D Model Compression, Optimization and Analysis using CPUs, GPUs and APUs

    Project mention: I cannot open Skyrim's .dds files for editing using GIMP | /r/skyrimmods | 2023-01-28

    AMD’s Compressonator utility (https://github.com/GPUOpen-Tools/compressonator) is free and can provide much better image compression. It provides settings for adjusting the desired compression quality (better compression = slower). It can run either on CPU or GPU, though GPU will be faster, especially for BC7 compression. It works with my Nvidia card, so you don’t necessarily need an AMD card to use the utility, but YMMV depending on the GPU you’re trying to use.
