Getting Started

To get this crate up and running properly, you'll need to install some prerequisites.


Depending on the OS/distribution and packaging system, libraries might be split into separate packages with binaries and development files. To build projectM, both binaries and development files need to be installed.

General build dependencies for all platforms:

  • Rust
  • A working build toolchain.
  • CMake: Used to generate platform-specific build files.
  • OpenGL: 3D graphics library. Used to render the visualizations.
  • or GLES3: OpenGL libraries for embedded systems, version 3. Required to build projectM on Android devices, Raspberry Pi, Emscripten and the Universal Windows Platform.
  • glm: OpenGL Mathematics library. Optional, will use a bundled version with autotools or if not installed.
  • SDL2: Simple Directmedia Layer. Version 2.0.5 or higher is required to build the test UI.
  • LLVM: Low-Level Virtual Machine. Optional and experimental, used to speed up preset execution by leveraging the LLVM JIT compiler.

Only relevant for Windows:

  • vcpkg: C++ Library Manager for Windows. Optional, but recommended to install the aforementioned library dependencies.
  • GLEW: The OpenGL Extension Wrangler Library. Only required if using CMake to configure the build, the pre-created solutions use a bundled copy of GLEW.
