Slop Hardware Acceleration

Posted by Naelstrof on June 20, 2015

Added hardware acceleration to slop (OpenGL!) which means I can add coolio things like magnifying glasses.

I developed some algorithms to optimally push rectangles out of other rectangles using only math which was pretty fun.

Zooming in really far makes text look like they have a severe case of chromatic aberration. image

For those of you who use slop, could you help me test this feature at https://github.com/naelstrof/slop/tree/experimental? Just do

git clone git@github.com:naelstrof/slop.git
cd slop
git checkout experimental
cmake ./
make
./slop --opengl --magnify

and tell me what you think at naelstrof@gmail.com, thanks!
