Convert examples in external addons into visual studio project

Hi, newbie for openframeworks here.

I’m on Windows platform and use VS2017 as a daily IDE.

The VS version of openframeworks from the website works fine.
But since OF is made with the makefile system, and all developed addions I can find on github is also shipped with a “.make” file instead of a cross-platform compiling system like “CMake”, it is not clear to me how to try those examples from VS.

Is there an easy way to do this?

Also, does any developer here have a clue that if there’s a plan to ship OF with a CMake compiling system so that Windows users will also be easier to test and develop addons?


You can use Project Generator to update the example projects/older projects.

Got the solution on Slack, but thank you.
