Use [dub] to build and run the example project:

# Shows a nice demo of the various UI elements.
$ dub run dimgui:demo

# Shows how to properly handle memory management.
$ dub run dimgui:memory

Note: You will need to install the [glfw] shared library in order to run the example.

Real-world examples

dimgui is used in the following projects:

  • [dbox] - The 2D physics library uses dimgui for its interactive test-suite.


The public API is available in the [imgui.api] module.

Memory Management

For efficiency reasons [imgui] will batch all commands and will render the current frame once imguiRender is called. Calls to UI-defining functions such as imguiLabel will store a reference to the passed-in string and will not draw the string immediately.

This means you should not pass in memory allocated on the stack unless you can guarantee that:

  • The memory on the stack will live up to the point imguiRender is called.
  • The memory passed to the UI-defining functions is unique for each call.

An example of both improper and proper memory management is shown in the [memory] example.

Building dimgui as a static library

Run [dub] alone in the root project directory to build dimgui as a static library:

$ dub
