Fast Light Toolkit - GNU LGPL GUI toolkit for X11 and WindowsFLTK (pronounced "fulltick") is a LGPL C++ graphical user interface toolkit for X (UNIX®), OpenGL, and WIN32 (Microsoft® Windows® NT 4.0, 95, or 98). It is currently maintained by a small group of developers across the world with a central repository in the US.
FLTK was originally created to build in-house applications at Digital Domain for image processing and 3D graphics. The original author, Bill Spitzak, received permission from Digital Domain to release it to the public domain in the hopes that it could be used to make better, faster, and nicer-looking UNIX programs. Digital Domain has since withdrawn support for FLTK, but Bill is still able to work o!n it from time to time. FLTK was designed to be small and modular enough to be statically linked. FLTK also works fine as a shared library and has started being included on Linux distributions.
Here are some of the core features unique to FLTK:
