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

    As developers, many of us have faced the pain of introducing graphical interfaces to our programs. Traditional GUI libraries add a degree of complexity which you may not want if you are making tools that are intended for a variety of tasks such as debugging. Here we present a library that makes it possible to create loggers, profilers, debuggers or even an entire game making editor quickly and easily. The entire example presented here is available on Github.

  • GLFW

    A multi-platform library for OpenGL, OpenGL ES, Vulkan, window and input

    Dear ImGui is mainly designed for developers to use in content creation and debug tools. It's renderer agnostic in the way that you have to provide the tools to render the data but It's very easy to integrate into your own code as it has multiple bindings for different window and events handling libraries (like GLFW, SDL2 and GLUT) and multiple renderers (like OpenGL, DirectX and Vulkan).
