  • GitHub repo Veldrid

    A low-level, portable graphics library for .NET.

    If you’re interested in C#, You could look into Veldrid. It is 3D however, so im not sure how easy it is to do 2D with it. ImGui.NET is a set of .NET bindings for Dear ImGui, which is one of the best immediate mode gui librarys out there imo. It has a canvas feature which allows you to draw 2D shapes via the gui renderer. Also, the creator of Veldrid and ImGui.NET has an example project for ImGui.NET using veldrid..
