VkExtensionsFeaturesHelp - My New Library

I had this idea for quite some time and finally I've spent last weekend coding it, so here it is: 611 lines of code (and many times more of documentation), shared for free on MIT license:

** VkExtensionsFeaturesHelp **

Vulkan Extensions & Features Help, or VkExtensionsFeaturesHelp, is a small, header-only, C++ library for developers who use Vulkan API. It helps to avoid boilerplate code while creating VkInstance and VkDevice object by providing a convenient way to query and then enable:

  • instance layers
  • instance extensions
  • instance feature structures
  • device features
  • device extensions
  • device feature structures

The library provides a domain-specific language to describe the list of required or supported extensions, features, and layers. The language is fully defined in terms of preprocessor macros, so no custom build step is needed.

Any feedback is welcome :)
