Vulkan Memory Allocator - a library on GPUOpen & GitHub

Vulkan is hard. One of the difficulties is the responsibility of a developer to manually manage GPU memory. Various GPU vendors expose various set of memory heaps and types and you need to choose right ones. It is also recommended to allocate larger memory blocks and assign parts of them to individual buffers and images. Now there is a library that simplifies these tasks - a one that I developed as part of my job duties. It has just been announced on GPUOpen blog and published on GitHub:

It is a single-header C++ library with a simple C Vulkan-style interface documented using Doxygen-style comments. It is available on MIT license.
