# bodge chipmunk wrapper

Thin wrapper over `chipmunk`

2d physics library.

# Requirements

- ASDF/Quicklisp
- x86_64/i686 GNU/Linux, macOS or Windows

# Loading

`(ql:quickload '(chipmunk-blob bodge-chipmunk))`

# Usage

### Loading compiled foreign library

Unlike many other wrappers, this one doesn't load shared library into the image upon system loading. That what `chipmunk-blob`

system is for. It contains required compiled foreign library and loads it for you, that's why you need to load it before using `bodge-chipmunk`

functions. You, of course, can load wrapper without `chipmunk-blob`

by invoking

`(ql:quickload :bodge-chipmunk)`

Then let `cffi`

know where to find your own version of compiled foreign library and then call `(cffi:load-foreign-library 'cp:libchipmunk)`

manually yourself.

### Interface

All wrapped functions can be found in `%chipmunk`

package. On the other hand, `chipmunk`

package contains minimally lispified wrappers and utility functions.

# Example

Here's how chipmunk example from the manual translates to Common Lisp using this library.

#### C variant

## C source

```
#include <stdio.h>
#include <chipmunk.h>
int main(void){
// cpVect is a 2D vector and cpv() is a shortcut for initializing them.
cpVect gravity = cpv(0, -100);
// Create an empty space.
cpSpace *space = cpSpaceNew();
cpSpaceSetGravity(space, gravity);
// Add a static line segment shape for the ground.
// We'll make it slightly tilted so the ball will roll off.
// We attach it to a static body to tell Chipmunk it shouldn't be movable.
cpShape *ground = cpSegmentShapeNew(cpSpaceGetStaticBody(space), cpv(-20, 5), cpv(20, -5), 0);
cpShapeSetFriction(ground, 1);
cpSpaceAddShape(space, ground);
// Now let's make a ball that falls onto the line and rolls off.
// First we need to make a cpBody to hold the physical properties of the object.
// These include the mass, position, velocity, angle, etc. of the object.
// Then we attach collision shapes to the cpBody to give it a size and shape.
cpFloat radius = 5;
cpFloat mass = 1;
// The moment of inertia is like mass for rotation
// Use the cpMomentFor*() functions to help you approximate it.
cpFloat moment = cpMomentForCircle(mass, 0, radius, cpvzero);
// The cpSpaceAdd*() functions return the thing that you are adding.
// It's convenient to create and add an object in one line.
cpBody *ballBody = cpSpaceAddBody(space, cpBodyNew(mass, moment));
cpBodySetPos(ballBody, cpv(0, 15));
// Now we create the collision shape for the ball.
// You can create multiple collision shapes that point to the same body.
// They will all be attached to the body and move around to follow it.
cpShape *ballShape = cpSpaceAddShape(space, cpCircleShapeNew(ballBody, radius, cpvzero));
cpShapeSetFriction(ballShape, 0.7);
// Now that it's all set up, we simulate all the objects in the space by
// stepping forward through time in small increments called steps.
// It is *highly* recommended to use a fixed size time step.
cpFloat timeStep = 1.0/60.0;
for(cpFloat time = 0; time < 2; time += timeStep){
cpVect pos = cpBodyGetPosition(ballBody);
cpVect vel = cpBodyGetVelocity(ballBody);
printf(
"Time is %5.2f. ballBody is at (%5.2f, %5.2f). It's velocity is (%5.2f, %5.2f)\n",
time, pos.x, pos.y, vel.x, vel.y
);
cpSpaceStep(space, timeStep);
}
// Clean up our objects and exit!
cpShapeFree(ballShape);
cpBodyFree(ballBody);
cpShapeFree(ground);
cpSpaceFree(space);
return 0;
}
```

#### Common Lisp translation

*Note: I tried to translate C into CL as close as possible to the original, so what you see below is totally not how idimoatic CL is written.*

```

(:use :cl :claw)
(:export main))
(cl:in-package :chipmunk-example)
(defun main ()
(with-float-traps-masked ()
;; cpVect is a 2D vector and cpv() is a shortcut for initializing them.
(with-free (gravity (cp:v 0d0 -100d0))
;; Create an empty space.
(let ((space (%cp:space-new)))
(%cp:space-set-gravity space gravity)
;; Add a static line segment shape for the ground.
;; We'll make it slightly tilted so the ball will roll off.
;; We attach it to a static body to tell Chipmunk it shouldn't be movable.

(b (cp:v 20d0 -5d0)))

time (pos :x) (pos :y) (vel :x) (vel :y))
(%cp:space-step space time-step))))
;; Clean up our objects and exit!
(%cp:shape-free ball-shape)
