Novice > ofBaseApp vs ofSimpleApp

Hi
1st question> When using the Generator I always extend ofBaseApp but in many of the examples and tutorials I see ofSimpleApp.

Are ofBaseApp and ofSimpleApp 'built-in classes? Can they be used interchangeably?

2nd question
How do you configure the Project generator so that the default class names are something other than ofApp.cpp ?

yes ofSimpleApp is the way ofBaseApp was called until 0.7 or something like that, at some point we changed it’s name but it’s the same thing, there’s actually an alias so you can still use ofSimpleApp but it’s recommended to use ofBaseApp now.

you can call your main app class whatever you want but the project generator can’t do it yet, you need to do it manually if you want to do so

Thank you
