Readme for reflex-sdl2-

[back to package description]



This is a reflex host for sdl2.

Writing and running sdl2 apps requires version 2 of the awesome SDL library.


The first step is to install SDL.


Using homebrew...

brew install sdl2

Ubuntu / Debian

The sdl2 bindings require SDL >= 2.0.4, or for special instructions to be followed. Assuming you're on Ubuntu >= 16.04, you can run

apt-get install libsdl2-dev

otherwise please visit the org page above and install via their README.

building with stack

After installing SDL, we can build with stack.

Using stack is the path of least resistance.

stack build


After building you can view an example using the built-in 2d renderer in app/Main.hs.

To run the example do:

stack exec reflex-sdl2-exe
