raylib is a simple and easy-to-use library to enjoy videogames programming.

NOTE for ADVENTURERS: raylib is a programming library to enjoy videogames programming; no fancy interface, no visual helper... just coding in the most pure spartan-programmers way.

raylib does not provide the typical API documentation or a big set of tutorials. The library is designed to be minimalistic and be learned just from a cheatsheet with all required functionality and a big collection of examples to see how to use that functionality. Best way to learn to code is reading code.

Are you ready to learn? Jump to code examples!.

NOTE: raylib is being developed and maintained with big effort by Ray (that's me!). If you like the library and you enjoy it, consider contributing to the project through GitHub Sponsors, raylib Patreon or just donating on downloading.
