OpenHMD GDNative driver for OpenHMD
I'll add more info here soon, this is still a work in progress and likely to change drastically.
The leading version of this repository now lives at: https://github.com/GodotVR/godot_openhmd
Note that due to a breaking change in Godot 3.1 the current master of this repository creates a GDNative module that can only be used with Godot 3.1 or later.
If you want to build this module for Godot 3.0 please checkout the 3.0 branch.
Building this module
In order to compile this module you will have to clone the source code to disk. You will need a C/C++ compiler, python and scons installed. This is the same toolchain you will need in order to compile Godot from master. The documentation on Godot is a very good place to read up on this. It is too much information to duplicate here.
When cloning this repository make sure you also install all the submodules.
Either clone with
git clone --recursive or execute:
git submodules init git submodules update
If you're pulling a newer version (re)execute the
git submodules update command to make sure the modules are up to date. If you're interested in using different branches of the 3rd party modules just CD into their subfolder and you can execute git commands on those repositories.
Compiling If everything into place compiling should be pretty straight forward
The source code for the module is released under MIT license (see license file). Note that the related products used, hidapi, libusb, openhmd and Godot itself all have their own licenses.

PARKED FOR NOW... PLEASE IGNORE
The info below shows how to compile each 3rd party library however we currently do not use any of that. The scons file has all compilation instructions for all 3rd party tools. I'm leaving these instructions in the readme file because this is what we do want to move too to prevent issues coming from 3rd party modules changing or having special instructions for individual platforms.
Clone this repository using
git clone --recursive so all the needed packages will be cloned together with the source code.
After that build libusb, openhmd and hidapi, using the following commands:
export CORES=$(grep processor /proc/cpuinfo | wc -l) cd libusb ; ./bootstrap.sh ; ./configure ; make -j $CORES ; cd .. cd hidapi ; ./bootstrap ; ./configure ; make -j $CORES ; cd .. cd OpenHMD ; ./autogen.sh ; ./configure ; make -j $CORES ; cd ..
To make things easier, set the
GODOT_ROOT environment variable with the folder that holds the GODOT source code, for example, like this:
The you can build by issuing the followin command:
GODOT_HEADERS=$GODOT_ROOT/modules/gdnative/include/ /bin/scons -j $CORES
Last, you can test your build by issuing:
