On openframeworks.cc/setup/qtcreator/ it seems easy to get qt creator to work. I have to admit I had some problems and still have. Most I will be able to sort out myself.
But I utterly failed each time/approach to get auto completion to run for the OF native functions. Tried on different machines, on ubuntu 16.04 and 14.04, qt creator from QTs site as proposed, actual versions from half a year ago and yesterday (qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.6.2.run). Tried with the OF templates as well as with emptyExample as well as with importing a project through qt creator native process. No auto completion for OF functions. For functions of the App itself (ofApp Class) it does work, though.
Other people do seem to have the same problem, but I don’t know if all, most or just some. . Only concrete solution I found is to import the generated Projects in qt creator (native process, not OF template). Then to add all pathes to folders containing the OF classes in XX.files and all XX.h files in XX.includes (both of which do not exist before importing the project that way). Seems improbable that all people using auto completion on Linux are doing it like this?
So could you please help me sort this out:
- Is auto-completion supposed to work out of the box with qt creator on linux or do I have to take manual steps?
- In case of the latter: can you give me a hint to a smart(er) approach?
If there should still be something to do I am willing to help with providing scripts or stuff - as long as I can help with my limited skills.
Thanks for any hint
