SkeletonGL is a 2D rendering engine written in C++ with a focus on performance and flexibility, it offers a feature-complete, ready to use template to immediately begin working on the essential components of the application without having to first write an underlying foundation.
The engine is written in multiplatform C++ and relies exclusively on free and open libraries to provide everything a GPU accelerated program needs to deliver on the harshest standards. It's design abstracts away OpenGL's shortcoming by offering a dead simple interface to the engine's API together with an easily modifiable OpenGL 3.3+ wrapper that allows for specialized builds and effective debugging techniques.
All modern OpenGL rendering capabilities are available, making it a more complete alternative to SDL's 2D renderer while providing a very similar interface, its just as easy to use but with the added benefit of everything a core graphics engine should. If you're looking for a complete, yet unobtrusive solution for graphical desktop development, SkeletonGL is for you.
HEXmacs should work with any EMACS 25+ installation, but it is maintained for the newest stable release.
For Debia/Ubuntu systems:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install libsdl2-dev libglew-dev libfreetype6-dev
For Arch based systems:
sudo pacman -S sdl2 glew freetype2
Clone the SkeletonGL repo:
git clone https://git.xenobyte.xyz/XENOBYTE/skeletongl cd skeletongl/ make ./sgl ``**
The source code is thoroughly documented using the doxygen standard, any doxygen generator can parse the code and output the API's specification into a portable format of your choosing. The root folder contents are already setup as a template for new projects, simply add your own source code to the /src/ folder and update the makefile:

Note that the entire SkeletonGL interface can be seen in the window/window.hpp file. Visit the official project site at xenobyte.xyz for more information.
The following programs are made in SkeletonGL and free for you to tinker with.
snake-sgl // Simple snake clone and first SkeletonGL example program
cas-sgl // Conway's game of life simulator made in SkeletonGL & C++ with a focus on performance.
