The primary purpose of GLFW is to provide a simple interface to window management and OPENGL and OpenGL ES context creation .GLFW supports multiple windows, which can be either a normal desktop window or a full-screen window.

It provides a simple API for creating widows, contexts, and surfaces, receiving input and events 

GLFW natively supports Windows, macOS and Linux, and other Unix-like systems on Linux both X11 and wayland are supported.

The documentation is available online and is included in all sources and binary archives see the release notes for new features, caveats, and deprecations in the latest release. For more details, see the version history.

The master branch is the stable integration branch and should always compile and run on all supported platforms, although details of newly added features may change until they have been included in a release. New features and many bug fixes live on other branches until they are stable enough to merge.

If you are new to GLFW, you may find the tutorial for GLFW3 useful if you have used GLFW 2 in the past, there is a transition guide for moving to the GLFW3 APL.

GLFW IS A SMALL C library that lets you create and manage windows Open GL and Open GL ES contexts

  • CMake build system GLFW now uses the CMake build system instead of the various makefiles and project files used by earlier versions
  • Multiwindow support
  • Multimonitor support 
  • Unicode support 
  • clipboard support 

GLFW uses to generate project files for your chosen development environment to compile GLFW first generate these files. This starter project shows how to use CMake to create a project with GLFW, and the code is multi-platform and runs on windows.  

GLFW_FOCUSED specifies whether the widowed will be given input when created posible values are GLFW_TRUE and GLFW_FALSE

If you're looking for a way that you can do some simple development work on your computer, then look no further than GLFW for Windows. This program gives you the environment and tools that you will need in order to develop your own windows. You can even use GLFW to build your own surfaces. Best of all, this open source platform is free for anyone to take advantage of.
the best app for my developments GLFW helps me a lot,the packages that comes with it is so useful,my visual C++ I can do so much more with this app, I have no complains is very helpful.

GLFW is a free, open-source, multi-platform library for creating windows with OpenGL contexts and receiving input and events. It is written in C and has native support for Windows, macOS, Linux, FreeBSD, and many other platforms. GLFW is designed to be simple and easy to use, and is widely used in the game development community.
