What is This?

Build status Codecov Documentation Crate License

Crayon is a small, portable and extensible game framework, which loosely inspired by some amazing blogs on bitsquid, molecular and floooh.

Some goals include:

  • Extensible through external code modules;
  • Run on macOS, Linux, Windows, iOS, Android from the same source;
  • Built from the ground up to focus on multi-thread friendly with a work-stealing job scheduler;
  • Stateless, layered, multithread render system with OpenGL(ES) 3.0 backends;
  • Simplified assets workflow and asynchronous data loading from various filesystem;
  • Unified interfaces for handling input devices across platforms;
  • etc.

This project adheres to Semantic Versioning, all notable changes will be documented in this file.

Assets Workflow

The asset workflow comes with the version 0.5.0. During the development, the assets could be stored in formats which could producing and editing by authoring tools directly, and it will be compiled into some kind of effecient format for runtime (which is dependent on platform and hardware devices usually).

Currently, we are supporting assets with:

  1. Transmission files like .glTF, .blend, .fbx, etc.. through assimp.
    • Notes that not only Mesh, but also the nodes will be imported as Prefab for scene creation.
  2. Texture files like .psd, .png, .jpeg, .bmp, etc.. through PvrTexTool and crunch.
    • Notes that texture files could be compressed into PVRTC, ETC2 or S3TC formats based on platform.
  3. Audio files like .mp3, .wav, .ogg, .flac through RustAudio.
  4. Universal shader files through SPIRV are also in planning, and should be ready in next few releases.

The assets manipulation codes are placed under crayon-tools, checks out the repository for further details.

Quick Example

For the sake of brevity, you can als run a simple and quick example with commands:

git clone git@github.com:shawnscode/crayon.git && cd crayon/examples
cargo run --bin render_texture
