Hello, I'm currently interested in developing a basic 3d game for the upcoming Pyra. I am quite new to this community and do not own a Pandora, but have pre-orderd the Pyra. My idea was to start making the game using my Arch Linux install and then compiling in on the Pyra!

But in order to do that I need to know what OpenGl version to use and what library is the most appropriate, Or is it just come down to what ever I prefer(SDL2, GLFW or SFML)?

And what are the upsides & downsides to using any of the mention librarys on the Pyra?

If you need shaders, stick to SDL2 and use GLES2 context.
If you can go with OpenGL 1.5, using gl4es you can use mostly anything.

In short use GLES 2 with SDL2.
Thank you for your time ptitSeb & mjohansson.
