A ctypes-based wrapper for GLFW3.
This module provides Python bindings for GLFW (on GitHub: glfw/glfw). It is a ctypes wrapper which keeps very close to the original GLFW API, except for:
function names use the pythonic words_with_underscores notation instead of camelCase
GLFW_ and glfw prefixes have been removed, as their function is replaced by the module namespace
structs have been replaced with Python sequences
functions like glfwGetMonitors return a list instead of a pointer and an object count
Gamma ramps use floats between 0.0 and 1.0 instead of unsigned shorts
The example from the GLFW documentation ported to pyGLFW:
import glfw def main(): # Initialize the library if not glfw.init(): return # Create a windowed mode window and its OpenGL context window = glfw.create_window(640, 480, "Hello World", None, None) if not window: glfw.terminate() return # Make the window's context current glfw.make_context_current(window) # Loop until the user closes the window while not glfw.window_should_close(window): # Render here, e.g. using pyOpenGL # Swap front and back buffers glfw.swap_buffers(window) # Poll for and process events glfw.poll_events() glfw.terminate() if __name__ == "__main__": main()
