I’m currently looking for a library for creative coding and it seems to me that I have to decide between Cinder and openframeworks. Professionally I’m more from the “coding” side of creative coding; therefore I really like Cinder’s somewhat more professional approach and structure.
However, I’m on a Mac privately, and I’m experiencing painful slowness in code completion with Xcode 4 in Cinder - but not in openframeworks. Of course, code completion is incredibly helpful when learning an API, especially when its just for fun, so this is really an issue for me. With Cinder, getting the code completion list can take seconds while its instant with openframeworks.
Is this a known problem? Is there a workaround?
And why the vast difference between the two frameworks?
Thanks for your help & thoughts,
