openFrameworks is a C++ toolkit for creative coding


To grab a copy of openFrameworks for your platform, check the download page on the main site.

The master branch of this repository corresponds to the most recent release, with a few differences:

  1. The release includes a simple openFrameworks project generator.
  2. This GitHub repository contains code and libs for all the platforms, but the releases are done on a per-platform basis.
  3. This GitHub repository has no project files for the different examples. They are generated automatically for each release using a tool in apps/devApps/projectGenerator/.

How to

If you want to work with the openFrameworks GitHub repository, you should use the project generator to create project files for all the code in examples/.
For per-platform readmes, and more informations, see documentation.

To set up the project generator submodule, use the command git submodule init then git submodule update whilst inside the openFrameworks repo.


openFrameworks uses Semantic Versioning, although strict adherence will only come into effect at version 1.0.0.
