Has anyone had any joy setting up protobuf on Xcode?

#1

Hello, I’m having trouble getting protobuf to work at all, I’m not sure what’s gone wrong with my linker flags and header search paths and the like.

I had it working once on an old machine but this fresh install does not seem to work and I remember having to hack and hack

Is there anybody who has any experience with it.

Protobuf 3 would be ideal but absolutely any pointers would be appreciated.

Or even just Unix domain sockets?

Yes — what a journey!
I put together a tutorial for using google’s protobuf in openFrameworks and Xcode here.
Hope it helps :slight_smile:

Oh wow! I actually ended up abandoning this approach and ended up using a full http server (ofxaddon) - thank you so much for sharing this - 3 years later! I’ll definitely look at this for future projects though
