openGL Have Fun - A Go package that makes life with OpenGL enjoyable.OpenGL is verbose, it's usage patterns are repetitive and it's manual memory management doesn't fit Go's design. When making a game development library, it's usually desirable to create some higher-level abstractions around OpenGL. This library is a take on that.

DiligentEngine - Master repository for Diligent Engine project

  •    C++

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 ( 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.

OpenSceneGraph - 3D graphics toolkit

  •    C++

The OpenSceneGraph is an open source high performance 3D graphics toolkit, used by application developers in fields such as visual simulation, games, virtual reality, scientific visualization and modelling. It is based around the concept of a SceneGraph, providing an object-oriented framework on top of OpenGL. This frees the developer from implementing and optimizing low-level graphics calls and provides many additional utilities for rapid development of graphics applications.

reprocessing - ReasonML graphics library inspired by Processing

  •    Javascript

This is a high-level drawing library, inspired by Processing, allowing you to write code that'll run on the web (using WebGL) and natively (using OpenGL). The web environment is the simplest way to try reprocessing. (It uses an older verison of the Reason syntax though, we're working on fixing that).

ImGui.NET - An ImGui wrapper for .NET.

  •    CSharp

This is a .NET wrapper for the immediate mode GUI library, Dear ImGui ( ImGui.NET lets you build graphical interfaces using a simple immediate-mode style. ImGui.NET is a .NET Standard library, and can be used on all major .NET runtimes and operating systems. Included is a basic sample program that shows how to use the library, and renders the UI using Veldrid, a portable graphics library for .NET. By itself, Dear ImGui does not care what technology you use for rendering; it simply outputs textured triangles. Example renderers also exist for MonoGame and OpenTK (OpenGL).

Glitter - Dead Simple OpenGL

Glitter is a dead simple boilerplate for OpenGL, intended as a starting point for the tutorials on and Glitter compiles and statically links every required library, so you can jump right into doing what you probably want: how to get started with OpenGL. Glitter has a single dependency: cmake, which is used to generate platform-specific makefiles or project files. Start by cloning this repository, making sure to pass the --recursive flag to grab all the dependencies. If you forgot, then you can git submodule update --init instead.

Cell - OpenGL C++ Graphics Engine

  •    C++

Welcome to the development repository of Cell, an open-source OpenGL graphics engine aimed to serve as an educational repository for learning how a larger graphics engine can be structured and organized. A large focus of Cell is building an engine that is both easy to use and read. Cell also aims to provide both flexible and properly maintainable code. Note that this project is not finished, so code may still be vague nor are there proper build files yet. The engine will be heavily commented and documented from within the source code itself, to motivate new graphics programmers to take a look at any of its inner workings, without feeling too overwhelming.
