Sample applications for the Cinder framework. These samples are meant to be used with the latest official release of Cinder. Git users should build against the 'master' branch.
These code samples are compatible with the Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 compiler, which is the compiler of choice for the Windows platform. The code should also work with Visual Studio 2015. XCode support for MacOS X is currently not supported, but the C++ and GLSL source code should run on all platforms without modifications. If you find an inconsistency or platform related bug, please notify me or create a pull request, so that I can fix the issues and make these samples as cross-platform as possible.
Find specific, sample related information in the sample's README.md files.
Downloading and using the samples with Cinder
- Make sure you have downloaded the Cinder Framework. It is recommended to use Git, because this will make it easier for you to keep up to date with the latest versions of both Cinder and these samples. To learn more about how to create a copy of the Cinder Github repository, visit: http://libcinder.org/docs/welcome/GitSetup.html
- Make sure the Cinder master folder is called
cinder_master, so that the samples can find it automatically.
- Make sure you can successfully compile Cinder yourself.
Download the samples and place them next to Cinder's master folder:
- Open a command window (or Terminal)
- Switch to the disk containing the Cinder root folder, e.g.:
- Browse to the Cinder root folder:
- The samples must be placed next to the cinder_master folder, so go up one level:
- Clone the samples repository:
git clone https://github.com/paulhoux/Cinder-Samples.git cinder_samples
- Your folder should now look like this:
- Alternatively, you can download the repository as a ZIP-file and manually add the files to a "cinder_samples" folder.
- To run a sample, browse to the sample's folder and double-click the pre-compiled executable (.exe)
- To compile the sample yourself, browse to the sample's project folder (e.g.
vc2013) and double-click the project file (.vcxproj) or solution (.sln) to open it in Visual Studio. Then, press F7 to compile the sample. It should compile without errors, provided you also compiled the Cinder Framework itself.
- To make sure that both Cinder and the sample code are always up to date, you can add the Cinder Framework project to your solution:
- From the

- In the Solution Explorer, right-click on the sample project (e.g.

- Make sure the

Thanks to all contributors and to the people behind the Cinder framework for doing an excellent job!
