$ gem install glfw3
GLFW 3 bindings gem for Ruby 2.x.
To install the gem, you'll need GLFW 3 built and installed where pkg-config can find it. You may also want to grab some OpenGL bindings as well.
Once that's taken care of, you can install it simply by installing the gem via RubyGems.org using
$ gem install glfw3
Or by building and installing the gem, making note of the version so you know the gem package to install, like so:
$ gem build glfw3.gemspec $ gem install glfw3-VERSION-HERE.gemspec
After that, write a quick script to toy with it. For example:
require 'glfw3' require 'opengl-core' # Initialize GLFW 3 Glfw.init # Create a window window = Glfw::Window.new(800, 600, "Foobar") # Set some callbacks window.set_key_callback do |window, key, code, action, mods| window.should_close = true if key == Glfw::KEY_ESCAPE end window.set_close_callback do |window| window.should_close = true end # Make the window's context current window.make_context_current loop do # And do stuff Glfw.wait_events GL.glClear(GL::GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL::GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT) window.swap_buffers break if window.should_close? end # Explicitly destroy the window when done with it. window.destroy
ruby-glfw3 is licensed under a simplified BSD license because it seems the most reasonable. If there's a problem with that, let me know.
