installing addons using xcode.

Hello! :slight_smile:

I am learning openframeworks and I am having problems trying to use addons that don’t come within of_preRelease_v0.05_xcode_FAT.

For instance, and trying to use two addons. One is ofxTodd and the other ofxSimpleGui created by vanderlin that I downloaded from this post: http://forum.openframeworks.cc/t/ofxsimplegui—the-world-simplest-gui/1111/1

Then I modify ofAddons.h file and I added these lines

  
  
//-------------------------------------------- ofTodd  
#ifdef OF_ADDON_USING_OFXTODD  
	#include "ofTodd.h"  
#endif  
  
//-------------------------------------------- ofSimpleGui  
#ifdef OF_ADDON_USING_OFXSIMPLEGUI  
	#include "ofxSimpleGui.h"  
#endif  
  

Then I put these two lines inside testApp.h

  
  
#define OF_ADDON_USING_OFXTODD  
#define OF_ADDON_USING_OFXSIMPLEGUI  
  

Then I click build and run and I have these two erros:

error: ofTodd.h: No such file or directory
error: ofxSimpleGui.h: No such file or directory

I gest I have to set up the paths in order to find these files, but after searching for a while I couldn’t figure out how can this be solved.

Can anybody help me?
I really apreciate it

Finally I could make it work after taking a look to this post:
http://www.openframeworks.cc/forum/view-…-ght=addons

I just dragged the addon folder into the other addon folder that can be seen on the left column of the xcode window. I put a picture to show where I dragged the folder, because is easier to understand:

Thanks!

I had the same problem…
i resolve adding by hand the existing file in the virtual folder, but some time (dont understand why or when) some addon does not load the automatic completion (like intellisense or similar automatic suggestion for completing code)…
Have u had the same problem?
