  • Unified Shader Programming in C++ | 2021-10-03
  • Tool for visualizing simulation
    I looked far and wide and here's what I got: - OpenGL: It lets me do everything I want, but I also have to start from scratch (camera matrices, input handling, shader programming, etc). - Abstractions over OpenGL ((Cinder)[] and (Magnum)[]): Easier to use when compared to pure OpenGL, but they still require a considerable amount of manual work to get them to show hair strands on screen. - Game engines: I still haven't tried any, but my concern is whether or not they would let me use my own code to do all the simulation (collision detection, movement computation, etc).

    Try Magnum, it provides all you need for bootstrapping a game in modern C++:
  • Hitting a wall: the importance of learning without a game engine
    Magnum graphics is a pretty neat GL/Vk wrapper for abstracting away some of the graphics boilerplate. Using it now and while I do sometimes miss writing GL directly, it keeps my code cleaner than it otherwise would be if I were allowed to write it all from scratch :P
  • Best Vulkan wrapper / low-level graphics library?
    (Sorry for a self-promo, hope that's fine.) If you don't mind being an early adopter and use something that's still undergoing heavy development and is not complete yet, I'm building a low-level Vulkan wrapper in Magnum. If you aren't familiar with Magnum yet, it's a C++11 library that has (among other things) a thin OpenGL/GLES/WebGL wrapper that removes the platform-specific extension hell and most of the boilerplate while still allowing you to work with the raw APIs if you need ... and the same is now being done for Vulkan.
