[size=150]LUI (Lightweight User Interface)[/size]
So I’d like to announce LUI (Lightweight User Interface). It is meant to be a DirectGUI alternative,
being much faster and (hopefully) easier to use.
- Extremely fast, can handle thousands of elements
- Two skins already included with a more modern design than DirectGUI
- (should) be easier to use
- More convenient interface than DirectGUI:
— Margin, Padding like in CSS
— Easy to center and position elements (Setting top, left, right or bottom constraints)
— Relative constraints (e.g. width=“40%”)
— Easy to use layouts (Vertical layout, Horizontal layout), to make it easier to position elements
It is still in early beta, but it should be fairly useable already. What I need now is a lot of testing and
feedback, so LUI can be improved and eventually replace DirectGUI someday (or at least be a good alternative).
You can find the source and instructions on how to install it here: https://github.com/tobspr/LUI
Samples showing how to use LUI can be found here (Further Documentation/Wiki is planned): https://github.com/tobspr/LUI/tree/master/Demos
I would really appreciate your feedback on using LUI and suggestions on how to improve it.
Here is a screenshot of the default skin included:
