I wasn’t sure the best place to post this as it’s half a ‘feature’ request and half just wondering what OF developers thought.
I’m working on cross-platform applications in OF. I was wondering if it’d be possible to have the option to download a “Really Fat” version of OF where all the libs and files for all platforms are merged into one (so freeimage, for example, would have all the libs for mac, win, linux). This way for those that are building cross-platform applications they can use all the same OF core stuff for each platform (don’t need 3 separate directories for each platform) and then all that is needed is a separate project file (xcode, visual studio, codeblocks, etc) file between each OS. Of course the download would be potentially (a lot) bigger, but having 80% of the same files for each platform (all the OF/libs cpp/h files) brings a lot of redundancy when having to have 3 separate folders/locations for each platform of OF. Making it so only the project file is different between each OS will make it really simple to make changes and additions without having to copy/paste various code changes from one OS to the other.
What do others think as just another optional download that people can choose?
