JUCE module search paths - making the Projucer better

Several times a day I dream that the projucer has a:

Module Search Path

The simplest low risk implementation is this is:

  • A global preference
  • Used only when the modules are not found at their specified path
  • Supports multiple paths to be searched

This would be a non-breaking change, and would mean when downloading someone elses project, or sharing a project, it would more often than not ‘just work’, without them having to include the whole of JUCE.

It’s even more important when you are using third party modules, as the ‘copy paths to all modules feature’ is totally inappropriate when all the modules you need aren’t in the same folder.


I’ve added this to the backlog.

In fact, it was already in the backlog. I’ve moved it up a bit.
