Good afternoon, My name’s Philipp (Hi Zach, we met in Stuttgart) and apart from loving what You guys do and appreciating all the effort you put in OF I’m an absolute Noob. So sorry, if this is redundant, but I’ve not found much help for this using the search option.
My question is: Would it be an option to have a very basic introduction to folder structures, file hierarchies and the usaul way to “install” addons from the openframeworksaddon site?
Something that in a few correct words describes what i’ve learned today and what might be incorrect still as of the change to 007…
If I unzip one of the packages from http://ofxaddons.com/ I most times get a Folder containing some src, perhaps some other stuff and hopefully (in my case - as I’m on a Mac using xcode) an example project in a folder.
So I drag the Folder I’ve got into “addons” in my of-folder.
I rename it by cutting off the author’s name in front and the Version number at the end of the Folder’s name.
I drag and move the “examples” (or likewise titled) folder from inside my newly renamed folder into “apps/addonsExamples”.
I rename that example folder to what the folder in my addons folder is called to be sure not to confuse things later on.
After all I try to make sure I have only one folder between my project file and the surface, the same with my src and other folders in the addons folder (sort of on the second level.)
Was that how you do it?
Would someone waste his/her time on a proven documentation of that particular workflow (depending on the various OS’ … OSX might be very interesting)?
Again sorry for all these noob entries to start an existence here.
