Top 23 Rust wgpu Projects

  • rui

    Experimental Rust UI library

    Project mention: Do you think is it worth to learn gtk4 to use it with rust? | | 2022-11-12

    Depending on the scale of your project, I could suggest rui library which is cross platform though it's not related to gtk,, It's inspired by swiftUI

  • rend3

    Easy to use, customizable, efficient 3D renderer library built on wgpu.

    Project mention: Which graphics crate do you use? | | 2022-11-22

    I personally use Rend3, ability to use WGPU to make my own render effects, but I still get to build my own engine around it, although I'm waiting for the vertex-pulling branch to be merged before I really get going

  • Neothesia

    Flashy Synthesia Like Software For Linux,Windows and MacOs

    Project mention: Neothesia | | 2022-03-05
  • vange-rs

    Rusty Vangers clone

    Project mention: Driving through the voxel grid in vange-rs | | 2022-10-31

    This is a new rendering method I was working on in Rusty Vangers. It's based on using a hierarchical voxel grid (mipmapped 3D texture) as an acceleration structure for ray tracing. Allows viewing the level from any perspective, and is faster than the "painter" method.

  • wgpu_glyph

    A fast text renderer for wgpu (

    Project mention: wgpu_glyph VS wgpu-text - a user suggested alternative | | 2022-03-27
  • wgpu-mc

    Rust-based replacement for the default Minecraft renderer

    Project mention: Issues with shaders | | 2022-06-19

    Yep, sodium is 1.14+ and optifine didn't become useless until ~1.13+ when mojang ruined the codebase. Optifine is best on <=1.8 though. There's another mod alternative renderer that might replace both sodium/optifine on all versions soon but it's in very early alpha stage and probably will be for a few more years

  • blub

    3D fluid simulation experiments in Rust, using WebGPU-rs (WIP)

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • shame

    A shader EDSL for writing render and compute pipelines in rust

    Project mention: A shading language EDSL | | 2022-07-30

    Thanks for sharing. Besides what is mentioned in this post. There are many other projects solving similar problems and exploring better ways to integrate/write shaders in rust in different approaches. I list them for extra reference: and,

  • gbemulator

    Gameboy Emulator in Rust

    Project mention: A Game Boy Emulator written in Rust | | 2022-06-13
  • vger-rs

    2D GPU renderer for dynamic UIs

    Project mention: Vector Graphics on GPU | | 2022-08-10

    I've done a library for vector graphics on the GPU which works pretty well for my uses:

    and a rust version:

    (which powers my rust GUI library:

    Here's the approach for rendering path fills. From the readme:

    > The bezier path fill case is somewhat original. To avoid having to solve quadratic equations (which has numerical issues), the fragment function uses a sort-of reverse Loop-Blinn. To determine if a point is inside or outside, vger tests against the lines formed between the endpoints of each bezier curve, flipping inside/outside for each intersection with a +x ray from the point. Then vger tests the point against the area between the bezier segment and the line, flipping inside/outside again if inside. This avoids the pre-computation of Loop-Blinn, and the AA issues of Kokojima.

    It works pretty well, and doesn't require as much preprocessing as the code in the article. Also doesn't require any GPU compute (though I do use GPU compute for some things). I think ultimately the approach in the article (essentially Piet-metal, aka tessellating and binning into tiles) will deliver better performance, and support more primitives, but at greater implementation complexity. I've tried the Piet-metal approach myself and it's tricky! I like the simpler Shadertoy/SDF inspired approach :)

  • nbody-wasm-sim

    An N-body WebAssembly simulation using Web GPU

    Project mention: A WebGPU N-Body astrophysics simulation in Rust + WASM! (Demo) | | 2022-08-07
  • pilka

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

  • INOX

    Rust Game engine integrated in Blender

    Project mention: Resources on WGSL clip planes? | | 2022-09-18

    You could use a compute shader to do some clipping though This is what I'm doing for 3d culling:

  • nuance

    A tool to run your shaders on the gpu. Also a good demo application for wgpu-rs.

  • wgpu-openxr-example

    a barebones example of how to integrate OpenXR with wgpu (Vulkan-only)

    Project mention: wgpu-openxr-example: a barebones example of how to integrate OpenXR with wgpu (Vulkan-only) | | 2022-10-23
  • wgpu-text

    wgpu-text is a wrapper over glyph-brush for easier text rendering in wgpu. This project was inspired by and is similar to wgpu_glyph, but has additional features and is simpler. Also there is no need to include glyph-brush in your project.

    Project mention: wgpu_glyph VS wgpu-text - a user suggested alternative | | 2022-03-27

    wgpu-text is similar to wgpu_glyph but simpler. It provides basic text rendering and is still being worked on for new features.

  • Fabled-Engine

    Self Study on developing a game engine using wgpu as the rendering API. Learning as I go.
