Magnum/Corrade Hot Reload
Proof of concept implementation of hot reloading using corrade.
Inspired by a blog post on ourmachinery.com, I was motivated to finally implement hot reloading. As I use magnum and corrade for my lower-level projects, it is based on these (i.e. Corrade only, as it has everything I need) and I hope the community will profit from that in some way.
Currently only Windows is supported
mkdir build && cd build cmake .. cmake --build . --target install
Potentially with additional parameters like
CMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE depending on your specific setup.
After building, running on Windows is as simple as:
cd build/src HotReloadApplication.exe cd .. # Make change in TestModule.cpp cmake --build . --target TestModule # Magic!
