NAME

Graphics::Raylib - Perlish wrapper for Raylib videogame library

SYNOPSIS

    use Graphics::Raylib;
    use Graphics::Raylib::Text;
    use Graphics::Raylib::Color;

    my $g = Graphics::Raylib->window(120,20);
    $g->fps(5);

    my $text = Graphics::Raylib::Text->new(
        text => 'Hello World!',
        color => Graphics::Raylib::Color::DARKGRAY,
        size => 20,
    );

    while (!$g->exiting) {
        Graphics::Raylib::draw {
            $g->clear;

            $text->draw;
        };
    }

raylib

raylib is highly inspired by Borland BGI graphics lib and by XNA framework. Allegro and SDL have also been analyzed for reference.

NOTE for ADVENTURERS: raylib is a programming library to learn videogames programming; no fancy interface, no visual helpers, no auto-debugging... just coding in the most pure spartan-programmers way. Are you ready to learn? Jump to code examples!.

IMPLEMENTATION

This is a Perlish wrapper around Graphics::Raylib::XS, but not yet feature complete.

You can import Graphics::Raylib::XS for any functions not yet exposed perlishly.

METHODS/SUBS AND ARGUMENTS

window($width, $height, $title)

Constructs the Graphics::Raylib window. $title is optional and defaults to $0. Resources allocated for the window are freed when the handle returned by window goes out of scope.

fps($fps)

If $fps is supplied, sets the frame rate to that value. Returns the frame rate in both cases.

clear($color)

Clears the background to $color. $color defaults to Graphics::Raylib::Color::RAYWHITE.

exiting()

Returns true if user attempted exit.

draw($coderef)

Begins drawing, calls $coderef-()> and ends drawing. See examples.

EXAMPLES

Conway's Game of Life
    my $HZ = 60;
    my $SIZE = 80;

    my $CELL_SIZE = 6;

    use Graphics::Raylib;
    use Graphics::Raylib::Shape;
    use Graphics::Raylib::Color;
    use Graphics::Raylib::Text;

    use PDL;
    use PDL::Matrix;

    sub rotations { ($_->rotate(-1), $_, $_->rotate(1)) }

    my @data;
    foreach (0..$SIZE) {
        my @row;
        push @row, !!int(rand(2)) foreach 0..$SIZE;
        push @data, \@row;
    }

    my $gen = mpdl \@data;

    my $g = Graphics::Raylib->window($CELL_SIZE*$SIZE, $CELL_SIZE*$SIZE);

    $g->fps($HZ);

    my $text = Graphics::Raylib::Text->new(
        color => Graphics::Raylib::Color::DARKGRAY,
        size => 20,
    );

    my $rainbow = Graphics::Raylib::Color::Rainbow->new(colors => 240);

    my $i = 0;
    while (!$g->exiting)
    {
        my $bitmap = Graphics::Raylib::Shape->bitmap(
            matrix => unpdl($gen),
            color  => $rainbow->cycle,
        );

        Graphics::Raylib::draw {
            $g->clear(Graphics::Raylib::Color::BLACK);

            $text->{text} = "Generation " . ($i++);
            $text->draw;

            $bitmap->draw;
        };


        # replace every cell with a count of neighbours
        my $neighbourhood = zeroes $gen->dims;
        $neighbourhood += $_ for map { rotations } map {$_->transpose}
                                 map { rotations }      $gen->transpose;

        #  next gen are live cells with three neighbours or any with two
        my $next = $gen & ($neighbourhood == 4) | ($neighbourhood == 3);

        # procreate
        $gen = $next;
    }
