About Agar

Agar (or libAgar) is a cross-platform GUI toolkit. Agar provides a base framework and a set of widgets from which graphical applications can be built which run natively under X11, Windows, MacOS X, SDL and others. Agar takes advantage of texture memory and hardware acceleration wherever available. Agar may also attach to an existing SDL or OpenGL context and operate as a self-contained windowing GUI for the application. Agar can be compiled with zero dependencies (although FreeType is recommended for best font quality). Agar focuses on performance, efficiency and extensibility. The API is, unless documented otherwise, fully thread-safe.

Agar is free software. Its source code is freely usable and re-usable by everyone under a BSD license, which allows use in commercial applications free of charge. The best available version is 1.5.0.
