CGui Render

"Common GUI Render"


A GUI experiment/library that builds standalone native executables without significant toolchain efforts.

This is built on top of the buffer of pixels provided by cgui, and extends it's functionality by providing things like text render objects and input elements.

Layouts (eg flowpanes) are beyond the scope of this project.

Currently from a linux machine you can build a standalone linux64 binary with:

cargo build --release

To build win64, first install the cross cargo utility with cargo install cross.

Cross requires Docker to run.

Then add ~/.cargo/bin to your $PATH and build a win64 binary:

cross build --release --target x86_64-pc-windows-gnu

Things I will forget

Publish to crates.io:

cargo package
ls -lh target/package/rust-cgui-*.crate
cargo publish
