EFL's New Vector Graphics API For Designing User Interfaces - Cedric Bail, Samsung

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Enlightenment Foundation Library (EFL) is a set of libraries designed to use the full potential of any hardware to build modern UI's. Until now, the project has used raster graphics to leverage the fast and efficient rendering pipeline, but the demands of both designers and users has made the addition of a vector graphics API inevitable. However, this addition should not reduce developer's and user's expectation of a fast, lean, and power efficient library. This talk will focus on the new infrastructure that has been developed to provide the best foundation to grow vector graphics support. In particular, it will cover how vector graphics function, and how to use them from a scenegraph perspective while taking the full system into account. A brief comparison of raster and vector graphics will also be presented, and it will finish with some insight to the future direction of the project.
