    A simple and easy-to-use library to enjoy videogames programming

    Okay, after specifically googling for a MacOS raylib I found the homebrew formula for it, but according to [here]( and [here](, raylib only has windows installations. You'd think they would at least *mention* that it's also on linux/macos on the download page.

  • debug-draw

    Immediate-mode, renderer agnostic, lightweight debug drawing API. ?

  • 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.

  • magnum

    Lightweight and modular C++11 graphics middleware for games and data visualization

    If you want something that gives you more control you could use magnum.

  • Godot

    Godot Engine – Multi-platform 2D and 3D game engine

    You could also use Godot. Yes, its a full-blown engine, but it is written in C++ and open source. So you could embed your PE and only use the rendering part of Godot.
