HARFANG®
FRAMEWORK

Ready-to-Use 3D Library

HARFANG® Framework is an easy-to-adapt, cross-platform, multi-language, powerful and optimized 3D visualization engine written in C++ and accessible via an open API in C++, or high-level programming languages such as Python, Golang, and Lua.

Allowing for faster development speeds, while facilitating integration with embedded systems, the Framework meets challenging industry requirements of real-time 3D : strategic independence, responsiveness, flexibility, interoperability & durability.

Multi Development Language Support

Industry-tailored
Development Framework

Creating UX/UI content in an industrial context requires a toolchain that provides the same level of version control and build automation as source code. Our open-source binding generator allows you to leverage the full power of C++ while coding in your preferred high-level environment, making HARFANG® adapt to your project, and not the other way around.

From the architectural principles to the choice of supported APIs, all technological decisions that drive the development of HARFANG® are oriented towards a balance between high-performance, modularity and portability.

Take advantage of a complete 3D component, and command line tools that integrate seamlessly to any make/build system. Depending on your architecture requirements, it may be built in static, as a DLL/DSO, or as a Python wheel and a Lua extension.

Open API
& Accessible Source Code

HARFANG® Framework is designed to be included in all your projects, at all levels and in all possible forms. For that reason, HARFANG®'s approach is based on openness and flexibility.

The Framework is compatible with a wide choice of programming languages (C++, Python, Golang, Lua and more to come) through our public API. In addition to the visual interface, a command line toolchain enables the automation of complex tasks or continuous integration. Furthermore, HARFANG® Framework SDK can operate independently of HARFANG® Studio.

Our source code is open-source under the GPL & LGPLv3 licenses and available for commercial use thanks to the commercial license, hence unencumbered of potentially compromising proprietary dependencies. Subsequently, HARFANG's code is easily auditable and ready-to-use in sensitive environments requiring compliant solutions.
