Day For Night


This project requires openFrameworks 0.9.0. You can download it from the oF website if you don't already have it installed.

You'll also need to have your username added to the GitHub project, so have Zach add you if he hasn't already.

1. Find an artist to work with

Take a look at the project wiki and find an artist you'd like to work with.

2. Checkout the project from GitHub

In you openFrameworks apps folder, create a new folder for the "Day for Night" project. Then cd into that folder using the terminal and checkout the project from GitHub:

git clone

3. Make a branch

It's probably a good idea to work in your own branch. Actually, probably not totally necessary if you're making a sketch but feel free to do it if you want :).

Create a new branch:

cd dayForNightSFPC
git checkout -b branchName

4. Generate a new scene

Now you can use the scene generator script to generate a new scene. This will copy the emptyScene files and rename based on your new scene name.

Use the terminal to cd into your project folder and run the following, substituting sceneName with the name of your scene:

./ sceneName

It will copy the following files and create new files for your new scene:

  • bin/data/emptyScene/ => bin/data/sceneName/
  • src/scenes/emptyScene/ => src/scenes/sceneName/

Now you you can drag the new folder in the scenes folder into XCode. Make sure to use these settings if you drag the folder in:

XCode Settings

5. Submitting Changes

There are two different workflows for submitting changes:

If you're adding a new scene and not changing the architecture

Check to make sure you don't have uncommitted changes (commit them if you do):

git status

Now checkout the master branch and make sure it's up to date:

git checkout master
git pull

Now merge in your branch:

git merge branchName

Now push your changes to the repo:

git push

If you're making architectural changes

It's probably better to push your branch instead of merging directly into master, then submit a pull request.

Check to make sure you don't have uncommitted changes in your branch (commit them if you do):

git status

Now push your branch to GitHub:

git push origin branchName

Now go to the GitHub repo and submit a pull request via the GH interface.
