libGUI is a GUI rendering library ported from a pc project of me to the wii. It uses GX and is written in C++ and makes the creation of graphical user interfaces very easy.
For assisting the development of your GUI theres a simulation modus for Win32 systems using OpenGL with emulation of up to four wiimotes with your mouse.
After releasing a stable version of libGUI I will start to make some changes on my gui/skin editor (sorry, windows only, too) TeEd. It is a wysiwyg application for creating and editing gui's for libGUI.
More info about libGUI will follow in the next days.
- install devkitpro
- extract the libGUI archive to your development path
- include the libGUI header file
Tutorials will follow upon release of libGUI

currently working on first release
to be defined, but will be free even for commercial use. Source will maybe released at some time. I need to rewrite some parts, because I used some code from a commercial project I've done some time ago and I'm not able to release these sources.
