Force-inline all SPIR-V function calls SwiftShader does not support function calls in SPIR-V shader code at the moment, which isn't a big issue due to running the InlineExhaustivePass optimization pass. This is part of the default set of optimizations SPIRV-Tools applies. However, it has started to respect the DontInline flag, and leave calls to functions that declare this flag not inlined. This change adds a force-inline optimizer option to SPIRV-Tools, and enables it for SwiftShader. Note this does not violate the spec since the flag is a "Strong request, to the extent possible, to not inline the function." but not a demand. Some GPUs are assumed also not to support function calls and must force- inline every call too.

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 implementation is no longer supported, and will be removed. Read more about our recommendation to use ANGLE on top of SwiftShader Vulkan here (aka. “SwANGLE”).
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. You can execute
git clone https://swiftshader.googlesource.com/SwiftShader and manually place the commit hook in
SwiftShader/.git/hooks/, or to clone the repository and install the commit hook in one go:
git clone https://swiftshader.googlesource.com/SwiftShader && (cd SwiftShader && git submodule update --init --recursive third_party/git-hooks && ./third_party/git-hooks/install_hooks.sh)
On Windows, this command line requires using the Git Bash Shell.
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 11.0.1. Most IDEs come with clang-format support, but may require upgrading/downgrading to the clang-format version 11.0.0 release version (notably Chromium's buildtools has a clang-format binary which can be an in-between revision which produces different formatting results).
SwiftShader's Vulkan implementation can be tested using the dEQP test suite.
See docs/dEQP.md for details.
The third_party directory contains projects which originated outside of SwiftShader:
llvm-subzero contains a minimized set of LLVM dependencies of the Subzero project.
googletest contains the Google Test project, as a Git submodule. It is used for running unit tests for Chromium, and Reactor unit tests. Run
git submodule update --init to obtain/update the code. Any contributions should be made upstream.
