 How it works

CVulkan is a C module generated by a Python script. To proceed, the script computes a model of Vulkan API based on vk.xml (the file from Kronos describing the API) and then uses jinja2 templates to write the vulkanmodule.c file.

Here the basic steps:

  • Load vk.xml
  • Use xmltodict to parse the xml document
  • Generate a good data model from it
  • Pass the model to the jinja2 template engine
  • The template engine generate the final c file
