What is GeeXLab?

GeeXLab is a tool (we can call it a demotool) for quick coding and prototyping of real time 3D scenes. GeeXLab can be seen as a real time 3D scene browser (like Firefox for html scripts). You code your 3D scene in one or several source code files, you load the main scene file in GeeXLab and GeeXLab displays the scene. That’s all. GeeXLab language uses a simple mixture of XML, Lua and/or Python and GLSL. All rendering is done with OpenGL API. For an overview of GeeXLab, just read this article.

OpenGL, Lua, Python, PhysX

    un grand merci pour celle là: HYP_FontOutline(;-) ; car ça m’obligeait à faire des shared variables; D’ailleurs quels sont les cas où les shared variables py-lua sont les plus utiles ?

    Dans tous les cas où l’API Python de GXL n’offre pas les fonctions disponibles en Lua.
