VruiConfig Documentation

This document describes the VruiConfig system for managing configurations of the Vrui software environment.

The VruiConfig system consists of four basic components:

  • VruiConfigDriver a shell script that provides the necessary shell context for ConfigVislet, and a restart mechanism so that new configurations and/or programs can be launched from within the Vrui environment.
  • VruiConfig file a simple Vrui program that presents the configuration environment.
  • ConfigVislet a Vrui vislet that implements the configuration environment.
  • VruiConfigurations a directory that contains definitions for standard configurations, configuration fragments and Vrui program launchers.

Subsequent sections detail each of these components.

The prerequisites for the VruiConfig system are:
