    Dear ImGui: Bloat-free Graphical User interface for C++ with minimal dependencies

    Dear ImGui does have an ImDrawList API which can scratch the creative programming itch very well.

  • gui

    A simple gui for SFML version 2.6 that focuses on usability and customizability. Although still in the early stages of development, it has the groundwork in place to make UI design easier than most C++ libraries. Feel free to suggest any changes. (by PupperGump)

    I have a work-in-progress gui for SFML 2.5.1. It comes with buttons, sliders, and some nifty positioning/binding/drawing functions. TextInput is broken though, fixing that now.
