Contributing with cmake

how do i start to contribute with cmake.I’m seriously interested on this aspect so any guidance…

Maybe this can help: https://synfig-docs-dev.readthedocs.io/en/latest/building/Building%20using%20CMake.html

I’ve been wanting to contribute to the code as well and it took me a while just to get things set up, actually, I finished last night, I had to be reading and searching on youtube. I’m using NetBeans, haven’t done anything yet but I’m thinking of doing a tutorial of how I set up everything because I know a lot of windows users like myself would love to contribute but there are some hurdles to jump over. Videos of how to set up would be just wonderful.

there is any project ideas related to cmake?

Not sure I understand what it is that you are asking

I think this year GSoC got a lot of CMake stuff and now it’s on a “stable” state.
But @ice0 is the cmake guy who can talk about it :stuck_out_tongue:

so there maybe more craze at cmake?

there are any project ideas related to cmake for gsoc 2021?

Some video exist already for Netbeans setup (for a general idea)
From the wiki


Feom the ReadTheDocs

@kalyan You can contribute with something else than cmake too…

which is better netbeans or qtcreator?

If you propose your help for a build system generator you should already have some experience with C++ and know them already :stuck_out_tongue:

And it is not the instrument which counts the most, it is how the artist uses it…

Sorry, I guess there won’t be cmake this time.
