ObjFW is a portable, lightweight framework for the Objective C language. It enables you to write an application in Objective C that will run on any platform supported by ObjFW without having to worry about differences between operating systems or various frameworks that you would otherwise need if you want to be portable.
See https://heap.zone/objfw for more information.
To install ObjFW, just run the following commands:
$ ./configure $ make $ make install
In case you checked out ObjFW from the Git repository, you need to run the following command first:
Building as a Mac OS X framework
It is also possible to build ObjFW as a Mac OS X framework. To do so,
xcodebuild -target ObjFW in the root directory of ObjFW
or open the .xcodeproj in Xcode and choose Build -> Build from the
menu. Copy the resulting ObjFW.framework to
you are done.
Using the Mac OS X framework in Xcode
To use the Mac OS X framework in Xcode, you need to add the .framework
to your project and add the following flags to
Other C Flags:
Optionally, if you want to use blocks, you also need to add:
Building with LLVM/Clang for ARM
When using LLVM/Clang older than 3.5 to compile for ARM, it is necessary to
specify extra flags in order to enable ARM EHABI compliant exceptions. To do
OBJCFLAGS to this:
-O2 -g -mllvm -arm-enable-ehabi -mllvm -arm-enable-ehabi-descriptors
If you have a CPU supporting VFP or NEON, it is important to set the correct
architecture, as otherwise VFP / NEON registers won't be saved and restored
when forwarding. For example, if you have an ARMv6 that supports VFP, you
need to set
OBJC to this:
clang -march=armv6 -mfpu=vfp
Using these flags, ObjFW was compiled successfully for Android and the Raspberry Pi.
