The glVertex library emulates the legacy OpenGL API, which has been deprecated in OpenGL core profiles. It is also a convenience wrapper around GLSL shaders, VBOs and FBOs.


  • Header-only C++ library
  • Easy to install and use
  • Simple creation of vertex buffer objects (VBOs) and GLSL shaders
  • Brings back the key concepts of the fixed-function pipeline
  • Legacy features are mapped to the fast paths available in the OpenGL core profile
  • For rapid prototyping and teaching purposes
  • For easy development of efficient OpenGL rendering code
  • Specification of vertices and attributes in immediate mode fashion
  • Specification of perspective, modeling and viewing matrices in immediate mode fashion
  • Matrix stack operations in immediate mode fashion
  • Used at the Georg-Simon Ohm University of Applied Sciences in Nuremberg for teaching computer graphics courses
