I agree that its difficult at times to find relevant and up-to-date information on aspects of development with JUCE. There are already some tutorials appearing here on the site and I think more would be very welcome. I think How-to walkthrough examples are a good format. These could also go in the forum when it gets an update?
Maybe people could list topics they would like to get tutorials for?
I'd like one on: Embedding a TrueType font using the BinaryBuilder and using it in your project.
There is also the book "Getting Started with JUCE", which is great for starting out but quite thin and only touches on certain important aspects of JUCE.
I personally think this forum could do with an overhaul - I started a thread about this not too long ago: http://www.juce.com/forum/topic/forum-request
I think also there could be user-submitted tutorials and stuff, which I guess could be like a wiki.
I am honestly surprised by the lack of activity here - either not that many people are using JUCE, or they don't feel the need to post here, or maybe most people using JUCE aren't running into issues they feel the need to ask about?
I guess I expected more responses and discussions on topics, or maybe its just that often I dont get that many replies to my questions! Or maybe I'm just used to the kind of activity on Stack Overflow or XDA developers...
Either way I'm excited to be part of this community and would like to see it grow
Seems like there is not much interest from official side. A similar discussion ended with Fabian adding a link (clicked 9 times by now) to a google doc in this post: Collaborate document for host specific behaviour.
My personal feeling is, as long as these collaborative information is put in such obscure places, it is not very much appealing to contribute. I only take the time writing, if I think is helping anyone…
But if it’s a more visible thing, I think I find stuff to contribute.
There’s so much knowledge here, coupled with the slightly lacking search functionality in the forum… There a lots of topics that regularly come up, from beginner C++ questions, to multithreaded audio and GUI solutions. Plus its a great way to consolidate one’s own knowledge… win win
