Rust bindings for SDL2_ttf.
Rust-SDL2_ttf is a library for talking to the new SDL2_ttf library from Rust.
Rust-SDL2_ttf uses the MIT licence.
- SDL2_ttf development libraries
- Rust master or nightly
Place the following into your project's Cargo.toml file:
[dependencies] sdl2_ttf = "0.21"
sdl2_ttf is directly compatible with the corresponding version of sdl2. Hence sdl2_ttf v0.15 is compatible with sdl2 0.15, and so forth. Backwards compatibility is not guaranteed by rust-sdl2, so take that into account when creating new projects !
If you want the newest rust-sdl2_ttf, reference the repository:
[dependencies.sdl2_ttf] git = "https://github.com/andelf/rust-sdl2_ttf"
You can also just clone and build the library yourself:
git clone https://github.com/andelf/rust-sdl2_ttf cd rust-sdl2_ttf cargo build # TODO: OR if you are using the mac framework version rustc -L. --cfg mac_framework src/sdl2_ttf/lib.rs
If you're not using Cargo, you can compile the library manually:
git clone https://github.com/andelf/rust-sdl2_ttf cd rust-sdl2_ttf rustc src/sdl2_ttf/lib.rs
A simple demo that prints out a string given a font is included:
cargo run --example demo /path/to/font.(ttf|ttc|fon)
