Socoder -> Misc Languages -> Raylib

After watching a video by "games from scratch" about Raylib I tried it out.
For windows it has 2 installers on itch.io with the Notepad++ editor with in each package one of two compilers included. It is ready for use after installing. F6 to compile and run. raysan5.itch.io/raylib
Raylib uses the C language and is written in that also. There are various other language bindings for it. I had not much trouble starting using C but it took me a while before I could do more complicated stuff. After getting a little comfortable I started converting a old blitz game to it and my sprite editor.
Raylib reminds me a little of Blitz3d. There is so much documentation on the C language online, that is great! For Raylib itself it is less but there is a rather large and active Discord channel where you can get help. I have made my own repo with examples on how to get started(see links)
I have gotten into using pointers(pointer to a memory address) I still need to get used to that. There is a way to compile with emscripten but this requires setting up.
I have been coding every day since I installed it now 2 weeks ago.
