DiligentEngine - Master repository for Diligent Engine project

  •        77

Diligent Engine is a lightweight cross-platform abstraction layer between the application and the platform-specific graphics API designed to take advantages of next-generation APIs such as Direct3D12 and Vulkan, while providing support for older platforms via Direct3D11, OpenGL and OpenGLES. Diligent Engine exposes common front-end for all supported platforms and provides interoperability with underlying native API. Shader source code converter allows HLSL shaders to be used on all supported platforms and rendering backends. The engine is intended to be used as a graphics subsystem in a game engine or any other 3D application, and supports integration with Unity. Diligent Engine is distributed under Apache 2.0 license and is free to use. Alternatively, you can get master repository fisrt, and then individually clone all submodules into the engine's root folder.

lwjgl3 - LWJGL is a Java library that enables cross-platform access to popular native APIs useful in the development of graphics (OpenGL), audio (OpenAL) and parallel computing (OpenCL) applications

  •    Kotlin

LWJGL (https://www.lwjgl.org) is a Java library that enables cross-platform access to popular native APIs useful in the development of graphics (OpenGL/Vulkan), audio (OpenAL) and parallel computing (OpenCL) applications. This access is direct and high-performance, yet also wrapped in a type-safe and user-friendly layer, appropriate for the Java ecosystem.LWJGL is an enabling technology and provides low-level access. It is not a framework and does not provide higher-level utilities than what the native libraries expose. As such, novice programmers are encouraged to try one of the frameworks or game engines that make use of LWJGL, before working directly with the library.

GraphicsSamples - GameWorks cross-platform graphics API samples

It is an expansion and continuation of the longstanding OpenGL Graphics and Compute Samples, adding full support for and samples of the Vulkan 3D API. The samples run on all supported target platforms from a single source base.

vulkano - Safe and rich Rust wrapper around the Vulkan API

  •    Rust

See also vulkano.rs. Vulkano is a Rust wrapper around the Vulkan graphics API. It follows the Rust philosophy, which is that as long as you don't use unsafe code you shouldn't be able to trigger any undefined behavior. In the case of Vulkan, this means that non-unsafe code should always conform to valid API usage.

AMDVLK - AMD Open Source Driver For Vulkan

  •    Python

The AMD Open Source Driver for Vulkan® is an open-source Vulkan driver for Radeon™ graphics adapters on Linux®. It is built on top of AMD's Platform Abstraction Library (PAL), a shared component that is designed to encapsulate certain hardware and OS-specific programming details for many of AMD's 3D and compute drivers. Leveraging PAL can help provide a consistent experience across platforms, including support for recently released GPUs and compatibility with AMD developer tools. Shaders that compose a particular VkPipeline object are compiled as a single entity using the LLVM-Based Pipeline Compiler (LLPC) library. LLPC builds on LLVM's existing shader compilation infrastructure for AMD GPUs to generate code objects compatible with PAL's pipeline ABI. Notably, AMD's closed-source Vulkan driver currently uses a different pipeline compiler, which is the major difference between AMD's open-source and closed-source Vulkan drivers.

Native_SDK - C++ cross-platform 3D graphics SDK

  •    HTML

The PowerVR SDK is an open source codebase that can help you develop Graphics applications for PowerVR and other platforms. It consists of two main parts: the examples and the framework. The framework is a collection of libraries that aim to ease development of OpenGL and Vulkan real-time applications by removing the boilerplate code and in general enhancing productivity. The Framework can be thought of as the lowest-level parts of a graphics engine - the main loop, platform abstraction and graphical utilities. There are some experimental examples of how someone could build an actual engine on top of it. Basically, the framework is there to make the uninteresting bits smaller (or even make them disappear), while focusing on the Graphics API calls to draw something on the screen, with as little boilerplate as possible.

vulkan_minimal_compute - Minimal Example of Using Vulkan for Compute Operations. Only ~400LOC.

  •    C++

This is a simple demo that demonstrates how to use Vulkan for compute operations only. In other words, this demo does nothing related to graphics, and only uses Vulkan to execute some computation on the GPU. For this demo, Vulkan is used to render the Mandelbrot set on the GPU. The demo is very simple, and is only ~400LOC. The code is heavily commented, so it should be useful for people interested in learning Vulkan. The application launches a compute shader that renders the mandelbrot set, by rendering it into a storage buffer. The storage buffer is then read from the GPU, and saved as .png. Check the source code comments for further info.
