Getting started with Runtime Compiled C Plus Plus

Supported OS / Compilers:

For Visual Studio and XCode the main project file is found in the Aurora directory. All dependencies should be normally present.

Linux requires the following dependencies installed for the SimpleTest project (use "sudo apt-get install NAME"):

  • libfreetype6-dev
  • libx11-dev
  • libgl1-mesa-dev
  • libgl1u-mesa-dev
  • libglfw-dev, if using system glfw, otherwise this comes prebuilt for 64bit Linux. To use the system glfw set the option GLFW_SYSTEM to ON - cmake .. -DGLFW_SYSTEM=ON

For Eclipse use File->Import->General->Existing Projects into Workspace and select the RuntimeCompiledCPlusPlus directory and import all projects it finds (best not to copy so you can keep everything up to date with git).

For cmake, create a folder called build in the Aurora directory and run cmake from there followed by make: on Linux run "mkdir build && cd build && cmake .. && make" from Aurora dir.

Sample Projects

  • There are two examples: SimpleTest and ConsoleExample. If using Visual Studio, to run the Pulse demo, right click on the SimpleTest project and select Set as StartUp Project. Build and Run.
  • See the Demo Tutorials page for how to reproduce the examples shown in the videos on our blog.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
