waffle — a library for selecting an OpenGL API and window system at runtime

Synopsis

#include <waffle.h>

Link with -lwaffle-1.

Description

Waffle is a cross-platform library that allows one to defer selection of an OpenGL API and of window system until runtime. For example, on Linux, Waffle enables an application to select X11/EGL with an OpenGL 3.3 core profile, Wayland with OpenGL ES2, and other window system / API combinations.

Waffle's immediate goal is to enable Piglit[1], Mesa[2]'s OpenGL test suite, to test multiple OpenGL flavors in a cross-platform way, and to allow each Piglit test to choose its OpenGL API and window system at runtime. A future goal is to enable the ability to record, with another tool such as APITrace[3], an application's OpenGL calls on one operating system or window system, and then replay that trace on a different system.
