im new to opengl and i use glut, but i was wondring what are some other options to glut, and which one is the best?

Things you can use in place of glut include, but are not limited to:

  • SDL
  • glfw
  • native APIs
    – glx
    – win32
    — MFC

“The best” is all a matter of opinion. Some of the ones I listed are portable, some are not, etc…
