  • ImFrame

    dear imgui + glfw framework

    Dear ImGUI - Unlike the others, is designed for applications with a real-time rendering loop, such as games. Was originally designed for creating debugging UIs, although has expanded far beyond this, and is now used for full-featured applications. Requires an existing back-end to plug into. If you need an application framework for Dear ImGUI, you can use my own project ImFrame, or something similar.
