Implementation agnostic memory allocator for Vulkan like APIs.

This crate is intended to be used as part of safe API implementations.
Use with caution. There are unsafe functions all over the place.


Start with fetching DeviceProperties from gpu-alloc-<backend> crate for the backend of choice.
Then create GpuAllocator instance and use it for all device memory allocations.
GpuAllocator will take care for all necessary bookkeeping like memory object count limit, heap budget and memory mapping.

Backends implementations

Backend supporting crates should not depend on this crate.
Instead they should depend on gpu-alloc-types which is much more stable, allowing to upgrade gpu-alloc version without gpu-alloc-<backend> upgrade.

Supported Rust Versions

The minimum supported version is 1.40. The current version is not guaranteed to build on Rust versions earlier than the minimum supported version.

gpu-alloc-erupt crate requires version 1.48 or higher due to dependency on erupt crate.
