TWL is a graphical user interface library for Java built on top of OpenGL. It provides a rich set of standard widgets including labels, edit fields, tables, popups, tooltips, frames and a lot more. Different layout container are available to create even the most advanced user interfaces.
With the TextArea class TWL also features a powerful HTML renderer which supports a subset of XHTML/CSS: floating elements, tables, images, unordered lists, text alignment, justified text and background images. See the TextArea Demo for details. It is perfectly suited to create NPC chat dialogs in games or integrated help systems.
As games have a high demand on visual identity, TWL provides a very flexible theme manager. The theme manager decouples the visual representation of widgets from the code. Themes are specified in XML and PNG files with full alpha blending for effects such as glow or shadows. These themed can be created using the TWL Theme Editor, which also includes a powerful tool to create bitmap fonts from TrueType fonts.
TWL is also supported on Android but to use it an Android compatible renderer needs to be written
A Scala API is now also available
