Automate installing the API library for testing To run dEQP tests we previously either had to install the Vulkan Loader and configure it to find the SwiftShader Vulkan ICD, or manually copy over the library. This change introduces the SWIFTSHADER_VULKAN_API_LIBRARY_INSTALL_PATH environment variable, which can be set to a path where the API library should be copied to. When used with dEQP it ensures we always test with the last build, instead of the path provided in the JSON file used by the Vulkan loader. Note this is only meant as a convenience for SwiftShader development. It shouldn't be used as a substitute for installing the ICD for system-wide usage. The latter should probably use CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX instead, but there are no known use cases yet for installing SwiftShader as the system-level driver, through the CMake build.

SwiftShader is a high-performance CPU-based implementation of the Vulkan graphics API12. Its goal is to provide hardware independence for advanced 3D graphics.
NOTE: SwiftShader's OpenGL ES frontend is no longer supported, and will eventually be removed. Read more about our recommendation to use ANGLE on top of SwiftShader Vulkan here.
SwiftShader libraries can be built for Windows, Linux, and macOS.
Android and Chrome (OS) build environments are also supported.
cd build cmake .. cmake --build . --parallel ./vk-unittests
Tip: Set the CMAKE_BUILD_PARALLEL_LEVEL environment variable to control the level of parallelism.
To build the Vulkan ICD library, use Visual Studio 2019 to open the project folder and wait for it to run CMake. Open the CMake Targets View in the Solution Explorer and select the vk_swiftshader project to build it.
The SwiftShader libraries act as drop-in replacements for graphics drivers.
On Windows, most applications can be made to use SwiftShader's DLLs by placing them in the same folder as the executable. On Linux, the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable or
-rpath linker option can be used to direct applications to search for shared libraries in the indicated directory first.
In general, Vulkan applications look for a shared library named
vulkan-1.dll on Windows (
vulkan-1.so on Linux). This ‘loader’ library then redirects API calls to the actual Installable Client Driver (ICD). SwiftShader's ICD is named
libvk_swiftshader.dll, but it can be renamed to
vulkan-1.dll to be loaded directly by the application. Alternatively, you can set the
VK_ICD_FILENAMES environment variable to the path to
vk_swiftshader_icd.json file that is generated under the build directory (e.g.
.\SwiftShader\build\Windows\vk_swiftshader_icd.json). To learn more about how Vulkan loading works, read the official documentation here.

All changes require a Change-ID tag in the commit message. A commit hook may be used to add this tag automatically, and can be found at: https://gerrit-review.googlesource.com/tools/hooks/commit-msg. To clone the repository and install the commit hook in one go:
git clone https://swiftshader.googlesource.com/SwiftShader && (cd SwiftShader && curl -Lo `git rev-parse --git-dir`/hooks/commit-msg https://gerrit-review.googlesource.com/tools/hooks/commit-msg ; chmod +x `git rev-parse --git-dir`/hooks/commit-msg)
Changes are uploaded to Gerrit by executing:
git push origin HEAD:refs/for/master
Some tests will automatically be run against the change. Notably, presubmit.sh verifies the change has been formatted using clang-format 10.0. Most IDEs come with clang-format support, but may require downgrading to clang-format version 10.0.
SwiftShader's OpenGL ES implementation can be tested using the dEQP test suite.
See docs/dEQP.md for details.
