Corrade functionality exposed in easy-to-integrate single-header libraries.
Selected Corrade functionality is also available as single-header libraries, with the goal of providing significantly smaller, faster-compiling and generally better alternatives to commonly available implementations while being as easy as possible to integrate into existing projects. The general rule is having preprocessed size not not exceeding 10k lines — to put this in perspective, not even the
<string> header can fit there.
So far, the following classes and libraries are provided as single-header libs, all of them available for download through the magnum-singles repository. Each of them is automatically generated from unmodified Corrade sources using the builtin single-header generator tool.
|Class or library||Single-header version|
To keep file size small, the single-header versions have all the comments and documentation stripped away, except for a short description and a single top-level license block, containing also credit information for all contributors. Documentation is meant to be retrieved online, the wrapping namespaces and all API naming stay completely the same as when using Corrade directly.
The files retain their own include guards, which makes it possible to mix them together. However, when combining more than one, make sure to have all files from the same revision to avoid API mismatches. The concrete revision that was used to generate each library is printed in its header comment.
All headers above are created with CORRADE_
#define CORRADE_ASSERT before including the file. See the Corrade/
Some files contain additional disabled-by-default functionality (for example the STL compatibility of Containers::
