Paddle Battle -- a simple game written in Julia.

A simple pong clone built in julia using the SDL2 library.

This repo is an example of building a complete game, compiled and distributed as a .app, written entirely in Julia! This game uses the package, which provides julia bindings for SDL2, for its graphics and keyboard/mouse input.

The game can be compiled into a complete, ready-for-release distributable via the build script (./ It simply invokes build_app.jl from NHDaly/build-jl-app-bundle to compile and bundle a macOS application from the julia code.

Building the game in Julia was lots of fun! Not least, live-editing code in Juno is really nice: Paddle-Battle-Juno-live-editing.gif
