    I wonder if using your library (https://github.com/floooh/sokol) instead of OpenGL will alleviate some of these issues for newcomers! There's already a sokol port of the learnopengl.com code (https://github.com/GeertArien/learnopengl-examples), so it shouldn't be too hard to match between the tutorial articles and these.

    If you're looking for something like this, Sokol is a much simpler alternative:

    https://github.com/floooh/sokol

    It doesn't support vulkan though, but if that's important to you you're probably much better off just using vulkan directly since it's supported on all the major platforms.

  • Why glibc 2.34 removed libpthread
    3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 2 Jul 2023
    All I can do is give you a couple of Github ticket links where users of my libraries stumbled over the issue (and with different symptoms):

    - https://github.com/floooh/sokol/issues/376

    - https://github.com/floooh/sokol/issues/404

    - https://github.com/floooh/cimgui-sokol-starterkit/issues/6

    We then added a dummy call to a no-op pthread function, so that users can better figure out that they need to use -pthread because now they get a linker error instead of a runtime crash or hang. This has since reduced the 'support overhead' quite a bit:

  • File for Divorce from LLVM

    My stuff for instance:

    ...inspired by:

    https://github.com/nothings/stb

    But it's not so much about the build system, but requiring a separate C/C++ compiler toolchain (Rust needs this, Zig currently does not - unless the proposal is implemented).

    It's not Rust and TS, instead C and JS, but Emscripten has a very nice way of integrating C/C++ and JS (you can just embed snippets of Javascript inside C/C++ source files), e.g. starting at this line, there's a couple of embedded Javascript functions which can be called like C functions directly from the "C side":
