Top 4 Rust Shader Projects

  • GitHub repo rust-gpu

    🐉 Making Rust a first-class language and ecosystem for GPU code 🚧

    Project mention: What's everyone working on this week (40/2021)? | | 2021-10-04

    Another aspect of writing code for GPUs are the shaders, the code that gets executed in the GPU. These can be written in CUDA C (for CUDA), OpenCL C (for OpenCL), GLSL (if using graphic/compute APIs such as OpenGL), etc. Rust can be used for this purpose too, thanks to rust-gpu, but it is a bit more complex to get started.

  • GitHub repo luminance-rs

    Type-safe, type-level and stateless Rust graphics framework

    Project mention: Neophyte trying to choose and learn rendering framework | | 2021-10-11
  • Scout APM

    Scout APM: A developer's best friend. Try free for 14-days. Scout APM uses tracing logic that ties bottlenecks to source code so you know the exact line of code causing performance issues and can get back to building a great product faster.

  • GitHub repo compute-shader-101

    Sample code for compute shader 101 training

    Project mention: Vulkan Memory Allocator | | 2021-07-21

    I agree strongly with you about the need for good resources. Here are a few I've found that are useful.

    * A trip through the Graphics Pipeline[1] is slightly dated (10 years old) but still very relevant.

    * If you're interested in compute shaders specifically, I've put together "compute shader 101"

    * Alyssa Rosenzweig's posts[3] on reverse engineering GPUs casts a lot of light on how they work at a low level. It helps to have a big-picture understanding first.

    I think there is demand for a good book on this topic.




  • GitHub repo pilka

    Another live-coding tool for creating shader demos, Vulkan powered.
