IDE for OF itself


#1

What IDE are you using for developing OF itself? I don’t mean projects using the OF framework. I tried Eclipse but can’t get it properly working although I added every include path in the world.

Maybe Arturo could give me a hint. :wink:


#2

just use any of the supported IDEs.
you can even use any text editor and compile using make.

Thanks Roy.

I was just asking because I wanted code analysis, code completion and stuff like that and could not get it working in Eclipse. I got a lot of unresolved error messages but now I found a workable solution: include ofMain.h not only in the header files like ofApp.h but also in the cpp files like e.g. ofApp.cpp. I think it’s an Eclipse bug. Was just curious how people developing OF are doing it as probably they would need some help from the compiler with such a pretty big code base.


#4

I use whatever IDE I’m using on the given platform, typically VS on windows, Xcode on OSX and QTCreator on Linux.


#5

Holy crapper! I’m impressed. That would be too much for my little goat brain. :laughing::laughing::laughing:


#6

We are also working to get QTCreator working reliably across all platforms, so when that happens you won’t need to use all the different IDEs.


#7

I use QTCreator on Windows and I’m pretty happy. On the raspberry pi I use a plain text editor + make :slight_smile:
