JUCE Static Library project for 2012


#1

Can we please add a VisualStudio2012 static library to extras for JUCE?


#2

I didn’t think you were into static libs any more, Vinnie?


#3

I’m not, but I’d like to be able to browse the JUCE source tree and set breakpoints in Visual Studio 2012


#4

Can’t you just import the 2010 project?


#5

Yeah, that works, but then where would I save it? And I would have to do this for every one of my repositories that includes JUCE. I can’t put it in the JUCE subdirectory because it would interfere with a pull on the official repo (I’m using git-subtree). On the other hand, if you put it into extras/… then all me or anyone else would have to do is just pull the tip of the master branch and it would appear.


#6

But the introjucer doesn’t have a VS2012 export target yet. I’ll add that at some point, but VS2012 isn’t even released yet, and my attempt at installing the RC failed miserably.


#7

I can email you a JUCE static library project for 2012, all you have to do is add a folder VisualStudio2012 in extras/static library

Visual Studio 2012 was released on August 15th. I downloaded and installed the Visual Studio 2012 Express Desktop Edition, it seems to work. I’m in the process of adding 2012 support for all my projects.


#8

I don’t want to add a manually-generated project file, I’d need it to be introjucer-generated. Sorry, will have to wait a while.

(Currently, VS2012 won’t even launch on my PC, it got screwed by a service patch. Hopefully their next release will fix it).


#9

I’m confused…what’s wrong with at least having a manually generated project instead of nothing??


#10

I’d have to remember to update it when I change files. At the moment I have a script that automatically does that.


#11

I guess I should have been more clear, I was thinking of just a one-time snapshot as a hold me over until you get the IntroJucer support in place - no need to keep this project up to date. It’s not ideal but its preferable to having nothing and needing to maintain a git-subtree fork of JUCE in all my projects. I have users whining about not providing 2012 support.


#12

Here’s a branch with the project added in the directory extras/static library/VisualStudio2012

https://github.com/vinniefalco/JUCE/commits/vs2012

Release and Debug both build without problems.

Also, is it time to delete the “modules” branch? The last time it was merged was in February.


#13

Can we please get the static library project added to extras, for Visual Studio 2012?
