Pyglet based 3D Framework
PyGLy is a flexible OpenGL framework that sits ontop of Pyglet.
- OpenGL agnostic - Use Legacy (<=2.1) or Core (>=3) profiles.
- Cross-platform - Actively developed on Windows, Linux and Mac OS-X.
- Easy to install - Written in pure python and making use of Pyglet for windowing.
- Modular design - Take almost any part of PyGLy and use it on its own.
- Loosely coupled framework, not an engine - Don’t like an existing class? Don’t use it! PyGLy doesn’t force any programming method on you.
- Duck-typing - Replace any class with your own.
- Full control over rendering process.
- Uses Pyrr for Maths - NumPy powered Quaternion, Matrix, Vectors, Rays.
- Liberal BSD licensing - Do what you want!
- Active development - Being developed for games.
- Windowing - Supports multiple windows as per Pyglet.
- Viewports - Multiple viewports using simple to use wrappers.
- Optional scene objects - Scene nodes, cameras, render nodes.
- 3D transform objects - Wraps 3D maths in intuitive objects.
- GLSL shader support - Helpful error parsing.
- Sorting - Sort scene to minimise over-draw and to support transparency.
- Texture - Easily create OpenGL textures using raw data or PIL.
- View Matrices - Simple wrappers that provide easy manipulation of the view matrix.
- GL functions - Python wrappers for common tasks.
- Input - Simple event handlers for digital and analgue events.
- Cocos2D - Support for rendering PyGLy as a Cocos2D layer (OpenGL Legacy only).
- FRAMEWORK, not an engine. Program any way you want.
- FLEXIBLE, don’t force any one method upon the user
- FULL CONTROL at all times. Full access to rendering, objects, data. No obfuscation. No ‘awesome’ tricks. Just good, simple code.
- EASY INSTALLATION. No crazy C++ bindings and complex build procedures.
- EXPOSE as much functionality as possible. Lower classes are always accessible or usable on their own.
- LOOSE COUPLING. Code designed with minimal coupling, allowing you to use only what you want.
- OPTIONAL high level classes. Low level code is always usable. High level API is optional.
- EXAMPLES of high quality.
- PYTHON to the core.
- SPEED in development. Simple and Intuitive code provides convenience functions where it makes sense.
- DEFINED GOALS. PyGLy aims to provide a high quality, base. PyGLy will never become bloat-ware.
- PARTNER PROJECTS. PyGLy provides the core of our 3D stack.
PyGLy is in the PyPi database and can be installed via pip: ` pip install pygly `
PyGLy requires the following software:
- Python 2(.6?)+
- Pyrr (https://github.com/adamlwgriffiths/Pyrr)
Install PyGLy ` git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:adamlwgriffiths/PyGLy.git `
Install Pyrr (a submodule in PyGLy’s /contrib directory) ` cd PyGLy git submodule init git submodule update `
Install PyGLy depedencies: ` pip install -r requirements.txt `
Check that it worked! ` python pygly/examples/legacy/simple/main.py `
Check the ‘pygly/examples’ directory for for some example code.
PyGLy is developed by [Twisted Pair Development](http://twistedpairdevelopment.wordpress.com).
