Escher can be built targeting both Fuchsia and Linux. Building for Linux is useful because it allows use of Vulkan development tools that are not yet available on Fuchsia.
Building for Fuchsia
Escher itself is part of any Fuchsia build that includes Scenic, i.e. any build that targets a device with a screen. The Escher examples and tests are built by adding
//src/ui/lib/escher:escher_tests to your
fx set invocation.
Building for Linux
Escher can also build on Linux. In order to do so, you need to:
Install build dependencies:
sudo apt install libxinerama-dev libxrandr-dev libxcursor-dev libx11-xcb-dev libx11-dev mesa-common-dev
Install a GPU driver that supports Vulkan:
NVIDIA: version >= 367.35
sudo apt install nvidia-driver
Intel: Mesa >= 12.0
sudo apt install mesa-vulkan-drivers
LD_LIBRARY_PATHenvironment variables. Here we use the Vulkan layers and loader from Vulkan SDK:
export VULKAN_SDK=$FUCHSIA_DIR/prebuilt/third_party/vulkansdk/linux/x86_64 export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$VULKAN_SDK/lib export VK_LAYER_PATH=$VULKAN_SDK/etc/vulkan/explicit_layer.d
Specify that you want the Escher examples and unit-tests to be built:
cd $FUCHSIA_DIR fx set terminal.x64 --with='//src/ui/examples/escher,//src/ui/lib/escher:escher_tests'
See Getting started for how to set up the
The command-line above is just an example.
Do the following each time you want to rebuild and run the
fx build host_x64/waterfall && out/default/host_x64/waterfall
Escher unit-tests are built and run similarly:
fx build host_x64/escher_unittests && out/default/host_x64/escher_unittests fx build host_x64/escher_renderer_tests && out/default/host_x64/escher_renderer_tests
