    Looks cool, how does it compare to Tracy Any major design differences? Pros cons?
  • Is there a way I can visualize all the function calls made while running the project(C++) in a graphical way? | 2021-06-15
    I personally very like Tracy for that: Its easy to integrate, has a powerful UI, and most importantly, doesn't slow down your application too much.
  • Do games render the graphics on every frame? Like IMGUI? What is the difference?
    ImGui is very very fast, because the CPU side is fairly simple (creating a widget is just adding a bunch of vertices to a list) and the GPU side runs on the GPU which is an absolute monster for this kind of thing. Typically I observed less than a millisecond spend on ImGui on the CPU and something like 250us for the GPU, even for fairly complex UIs

  • Implicit In-order Forests: Zooming a billion trace events at 60fps
    See for an example of an actual tracing system. It's where you record the entry and exit of various functions as events and then typically display them on a timeline. Yes they should look like nested pyramids when zoomed in using an actual trace, but I randomly generated fake data so mine has no structure.

  • The complexity that lives in the GUI | 2021-02-14
    I think when you look at projects like Tracy, there's no question that immediate mode UIs also work for complex UIs: | 2021-02-14
    My point isn't that you can't make them work for non-trivial cases, after all as long as you can draw something on screen you can do pretty much anything. The point is how well that is done.

    For example from a quick look at the code it looks like this project needs to draw in a bunch of unrelated to each other libraries just to get some basic GUI functionality you'd find even in toolkits from the 80s provide (e.g. drawing text or using file dialogs).

    And check these sources [0] and [1], this is doing at least as much bookkeeping as in a "retained" GUI toolkit - except it also has to do things that such a toolkit would do automatically, like explicitly drawing the widgets [2]. People at the past were complaining how tools like Visual Basic were mixing presentation and logic, yet the worst you could do in these tools is to have the logic in event handlers (...which if you think a bit about it at least that does make a bit of sense), yet here is actual application logic being part of the drawing code in [3] (this is inside a method View::DrawPlayback, scroll a bit upwards to find it).

    Now sure, someone might say that this isn't the best example of immediate GUIs... but this is the one that was brought up as a good example. And TBH all it convinced me is that if (for some reason) i had to use imgui, to spend some time building a retained GUI wrapper around it :-P.
