The GLOW Toolkit
NEWSFLASH (14 October 2000)
The GLOW Toolkit is a cross-platform object-oriented framework for building interactive applications using OpenGL or similar APIs such as Mesa. It is, at its heart, an C++ wrapper for GLUT, providing a fully object-oriented API for creating windows, menus and other GUI elements, and for event handling. GLOW also features an extensible cross-platform widget library for building powerful user interfaces; a number of useful utilities such as an implementation of the arcball 3D manipulator; and, of course, full integration with OpenGL as the imaging API. GLOW is designed for write-once-compile-anywhere development, and should be source code compatible with any platform that supports OpenGL and GLUT.
