A UI Library for Gideros made of a plethora of widgets.

UI.Builder allows for building complex UI layouts.

  In order to use Gideros UI Library, you have to link or include the two following folders to your project:
  * Library/ui
  * Library/luashaders
  The folders are available in your Gideros installation folder (UI Library depends on luashaders)


In init.lua

UI=UI or {}

local fontfile = "fonts/OpenSans-Regular.ttf"
local fontfilebold = "fonts/OpenSans-Bold.ttf"

UI.Default = {
		["font"]={ ttf=fontfile, size=0.8 },
		["font.small"]={ ttf=fontfile, size=0.5 },
		["font.bold"]={ ttf=fontfilebold },

In your game
