## What's this?
This is a live-coding tool, where you can write a 2D fragment/pixel shader while it is running in the background.

The tool was originally conceived and implemented after the Revision 2014 demoscene party's live coding competition where two contestants improv-code an effect in 25 minutes head-to-head. Wanna see how it looks in action? Check https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KG_2q4OEhKc

## Requirements
On Windows, both DirectX 9 and 11 are supported.

For the OpenGL version (for any platform), at least OpenGL 4.1 is required.

25
On MacBooks with a TouchBar that are running macOS Mojave: Open up System Preferences, click on Security & Privacy, click on the privacy tab then click on the Accessibility menu item. Make sure Bonzomatic.app is ticked, otherwise only the "Quit" TouchBar button will work.

## Building
Gargaj's avatar

71
As you can see you're gonna need [CMAKE](https://cmake.org/) for this, but don't worry, a lot of it is automated at this point.

* On Windows, use at least Visual C++ 2010. For the DX9/DX11 builds, obviously you'll be needing a DirectX SDK, though a lot of it is already in the Windows 8.1 SDK as well.
73
* On Linux, you'll need ```xorg-dev``` and ```libglu1-mesa-dev```; after that ```cmake``` should take care of the rest.

* On OSX, ```cmake``` should take care of everything.
