Lepton is designed to make complex and beautiful particle effects possible,
and even easy from Python programs.
Lepton provides the following core features:
Native-code core for high-performance particle dynamics and rendering
Pluggable particle controllers for specifying particle behavior
Two pluggable OpenGL renderers, and two pygame renderers
Spacial domains, used to control particle emission and behavior
Easy to use and powerful texture support, including animation
Modular architecture that lets you easily configure and customize the engine
The code includes several examples of how you can use the engine (using
pyglet, and pygame). Note the engine itself does not depend on any other 3rd-party
libraries and simply requires the application to setup an OpenGL context in
order to render particles.
