Projects / libGx


LibGx is a lightweight, non-intrusive C++ widget library for writing X11 applications. LibGx is non-intrusive so that it does not dictate the structure of main(). LibGx is built directly on top of Xlib, but does not wrap Xlib. Xlib is used by the programmer for its drawing routines, and Xlib structures are used when programing with or extending libGx. LibGx does not have (and does not need) its own internal event scheme or type.
