I am a Python programmer (I know the ins and outs decently well), and I have dabbled with Pygame. I want to make 3D applications and games, and so naturally I've been looking at OpenGL.

pyglet uses OpenGL, and the programming website and documentation is up there with the best I've seen as far as libraries and APIs go.

Is there a place on the net where other pyglet programmers go to share projects and source code, like there is for Pygame?

I would love to see how other people are combining game logic and OpenGL graphical code to create a simple game (it really helps the learning process).

Does it really need to be pyglet then, if you're just looking for game logic combined with graphical code? And for that matter, python at all? – The Communist Duck Nov 21 '10 at 14:40

pyglet has a mailing list but no active web presence (or development at all) right now. In general people working on pyglet code are encouraged to submit to, and many also participate in PyWeek; there are many completed pyglet games there, although because of the time pressure the code is usually not great, even when the programmers are skilled.

Thanks for editing my original question :] - also, I think something needs to be said about the quality of games that show up during PyWeek (I had NO idea Pyglet programmers are among these applicants..same with I will download source of these games and take a look as an additional resource of learning. Thanks! – shadowprotocol Nov 20 '10 at 14:59

People post things made using Pyglet and PyOpenGL to The games list is open to anything in Python, not just the Pygame library.

Thanks I didn't know this. – shadowprotocol Nov 19 '10 at 22:49

I wrote a lengthy post about producing retro vector graphics using OpenGL from pyglet:
