About

🎁 A glib-like multi-platform c library

TBOX is a glib-like cross-platform C library that is simple to use yet powerful in nature.

The project focuses on making C development easier and provides many modules (.e.g stream, coroutine, regex, container, algorithm ...), so that any developer can quickly pick it up and enjoy the productivity boost when developing in C language.

It supports the following platforms:

  • Windows
  • Macosx
  • Linux
  • Android
  • iOS
And it provides many compiling options using xmake:

  • Release: Disable debug information, assertion, memory checking and enable optimization.
  • Debug: Enable debug information, assertion, memory checking and disable optimization.
  • Small: Disable all extensional modules and enable space optimization.
  • Micro: compiling micro library (~64K) for the embed system.
