What is a good workflow if you want to use openFrameworks master version from GitHub within Visual Studio?
(And you are a beginner with most of the tools involved, especially git). Please forgive me if I am not using the right terminology here - I am just and old c++ programmer, old SVN user and recent Mercurial user, who is trying to catch up with times!
- What is the recommended git client for windows? GitHub for Windows looks nice - Is this enough?
- What is an easy way to create Visual Studio Solutions for -say- one of the examples? I’ve seen scripts/vs/compileAllExamples.cmd but this doesn’t immediately work for me, even from a Visual Studio command window - I must be doing something wrong.
- What is a simple way to know if my clone of the repository is out-of-date or updated?
- What is a simple way to know if my working copy of the repository is out-of-date or updated?
[To give some context I am asking this because I reported an issue in the github forum about the windows download version. I was given a response that the issue was fixed in Master. I tried to pull the latest version, recompile,…but the issue seems to remain. Obviously I want to make sure I am doing everything right before I dare to suggest that the issue might still be unresolved].
Sorry for the long message and thanks for any help (pointers to right tutorials also welcome!)
