edit: I’ve got it figured out. Here’s a really barebones version of the tutorial.
this is written using the OS X release but it works for iOS, too
- Take a new OF project made by the project generator or the example project in the OF release and put it wherever you like
- Inside your project’s folder, create a new folder and call it “libs” or “libraries” or whatever you like
- Take the OF OSX release folder and put it inside this library folder; make sure you keep the folder structure intact (you can delete all the folders in the release except “lib”)
- open your project in Xcode
- The OF project inside your project will be missing (red); delete it and add your project-local OF .xccodeproj by navigating to …/libs/openFrameworksCompiled/project/osx and dragging the project into your project’s workspace
- Edit your project’s Project.xcconfig to reflect your custom OF_PATH and the include path to the OF project’s CoreOF.xcconfig file (e.g. OF_PATH = libraries/of_v0.8.4_osx_release instead of …/…/…/…)
- In Targets > Buid Phases > Target Dependencies : add openFrameworks
- In Targets > Build Phases > Link Binary With Libraries : add openFrameworksDebug.a
- in Targets > Build Phases > Run Script > edit the first line to match the OF_PATH you defined in Project.xcconfig
I’ve made an example project available via GitHub that you can clone/fork and avoid doing the above steps yourself.
I want to put together a tutorial on setting up an OF project to include the OF project inside the project folder (instead of vice-versa like the project generator does). It’s useful to make self-contained project that has the right version of OF inside. It’s been a boon when I’m working on an OF project with other people.
I’ve done this a couple times myself, but I always forget how to do it right the first time, so I figured I’d write it down.
In the interim, I’m wondering if anyone knows all the steps.
Here’s what I know to do (if you’re starting from a project generator OF project):
- Put OF inside the project in a folder (probably named lib or libs or library)
- Edit Project.xcconfig to the correct path to the new OF_PATH
- Remove the old OF xcodeproj and add the new one
- I think you need to double-check build settings for Dependencies and search paths?
I’m ending up with the OF project complaining about missing headers so I think I’m missing something.
The app is complaining about missing symbols for architecture i386 but I think that might fix itself if I include the OF library properly?
