vulkan-malloc = "0.1.5"

This crate provides an implementation of a general purpose device memory allocator that should cover common use cases for Vulkan-based applications, while minimising the frequency of actual allocations of memory blocks from the Vulkan runtime.

This crate is heavily based on the C++ library VulkanMemoryAllocator from AMD.

For more details about the rationale and implementation of this crate, please see the documentation of VulkanMemoryAllocator.

Allocator itself is thread-safe - it is both Send and Sync.

dacite is used for Vulkan bindings.
