C++ toolkit


finally I have packaged a distribution of libu, formerly a c++ widget set for
SDL, now a c++ toolkit for SDL.

Check out http://www.rhrk.uni-kl.de/~klaux/libu.html

The package can be used as a framework for your application, since it comes
with a nice configure script and an application template. (demos/simple.cc)
The mixer lib from the SDL-demos is used for sounds and music (included).

libu features:------------

  • complete encapsulation of SDL
  • application framework
  • animated and colored software mousecursor
  • sound samples and music
  • several widgets (buttons, lists, etc.)
  • ability to connect sound effects to the gui elements
  • resource management (preloading of surfaces, sounds, fonts and referencing
    them through strings inside your code)
  • surface loading from pngs and from gimp header-image-files (nice for compiled
    in images like icons or mouse pointers)
  • antialiasing truetype font rendering
  • progressbar
  • animation widget
  • painter class with circles (filled and empty) and vertical and horizontal
    lines. It works on all pixelformats and with alpha values as well.

The library is licensed under the LGPL; however the configure scripts are GPL.

Have fun !
