Pragma: How The Gaming Tool-kit Helps Developers To Focus On Games


David Mudd

We all love video games. But many of us don’t know how much effort it takes to create a video game. Developers and programmers use a different kind of programming language to create a game. PRAGMA is one kind of programming language that used for creating video games nowadays. We need to have a closer look at it. So, here are all the facts you should know about PRAGMA.


Pragma is a computer programming language that helps the programmer in processing the input in the device. It is founded by Eden Chen and Chris Cobb who is a former lead engineer in Riot. It is also known as Directive. It varies from compiler to compiler but not as a part of the grammar of programming language. Pragma is a back-end gaming toolkit for developers which helps them in focusing on the game.

Benefits of Pragma

This toolkit offers “backend as a service”, which includes features like accounts, player data, lobbies, social system, telemetry, matchmaking, store fulfillment, etc.

Uses Of Pragma

There is a lot of uses of Pragma in a computer programming language but not directly in the language itself.

  • The Pragma language is used to specify global behavior as well as to affect locally. It is also used in C programming and as an optional compiler hint to create prescriptive followings and to change the behavior of the compiler.
  • The directive term is also used in many ways to command a term or to markup a term or to refer for third party tags. This can be embedded in codes to extend the compiler, assemble and construct language in computer language development.

Leading video gaming companies like Epic, the developer of Fortnite, uses the front-end game engines from Pragma.

The Pragma which is developed in a vision to create multi-player games is a great platform to create video games in a short time span rather than taking it long as 5 to 10 years.
