Delete instruction about ANT, JDK and Perl for Android. They should not be necessary anymore for Android, but it might be a mistake

Be careful not to let Perl add paths to c headers and executables to your path as it can mess with your build environnement

h2. Get the Scol sources
43 1 arkeon
44 20 brainsandwich
Scol uses Subversion for source control and you can use your SVN client to get the source code.
45 6 arkeon
46 1 arkeon
So first retrieve the sources from "https://svn.scolring.org/trunk/", accept the certificate and go take some coffee.
47 1 arkeon
The source directories contains most of the dependencies, and since some of them are modified they are provided in the sources.
48 7 brainsandwich
49 20 brainsandwich
Some sources like curl use Git as source control and are downloaded when building, so make sure it's installed before building the project

h3. Windows
56 1 arkeon
57 1 arkeon
Once you get the sources, you can execute "setWindowsSearchPaths.bat" in the dependencies directory.
58 1 arkeon
!!WARNING!! when you execute the bat file using the mouse the current directory is wrong.
59 1 arkeon
You need to start a DOS command line "cmd.exe" as administrator and go to the dependencies directory to start the bat file manually.
60 1 arkeon

This will add needed environment variables and paths.

The following instructions are written to compile for 32 bits Windows. To compile for 64 bits Windows, use the 64 bits toolchain for each CMake configuration, and replace every instance of "x86" by "x64" in the instructions below.
86 39 lpousse
87 1 arkeon
Launch cmake-gui from a Visual Studio command line (it configures the environment so you can build things correctly)
88 22 hector
# Specify the source folder to trunk/dependencies and the build to trunk/dependencies/build/windows/x86
89 40 lpousse
# Hit Configure. In the message box, select your Visual Studio version as generator, and select "Specify toolchain file for cross-compiling". On the next screen, select trunk/dependencies/CMake/toolchain/win32.toolchain.cmake as the toolchain (for 64 bits, select the 64 bits variant of your VS version, and select trunk/dependencies/CMake/toolchain/win64.toolchain.cmake as the toolchain). This first configure will take a long time since it will download and compile some of the basic dependencies (probably about an hour depending on the power.

91 1 arkeon
You will see a list of categories, under which are variables to tweak build parameters.
92 1 arkeon
The category SCOLDEPS contains CMake variables that enable/disable the build of individual SCOL dependencies.
93 1 arkeon
Some of these dependencies depend on one or several others. Since CMake needs to detect these "sub-dependencies" when configuring,
94 21 hector
we need to make several build passes, in order to build said "sub-dependencies" before the dependencies that depend on them.
95 21 hector
96 21 hector
# Leave all variables at their default values.
97 21 hector
# Keep hitting Configure until no variables are highlighted in red.
98 1 arkeon
# Hit Generate to generate a Visual Studio project.
99 1 arkeon
# Build the project in Visual Studio (Build->Batch Build, check debug and release for "INSTALL" configuration).
100 39 lpousse
# When the build is done, in CMake, check HYDRAX and SKYX under SCOLDEPS (leave the other variables as they are).
101 21 hector
# Hit Configure again. When configuring is done, you will see new variables appear in red. Leave them at their default values.
102 1 arkeon
# Repeat steps 2 to 4.
103 1 arkeon
# HYDRAX / SKYX build might fail due to header conflicts. To solve them, in Visual Studio :
104 1 arkeon
## In the solution explorer, open the properties of the *RenderSystem_Direct3D11* project.
105 1 arkeon
## In the properties window, Select *All configurations*.
106 25 hector
## Under *Configuration Properties* > *C/C++* > *General*, modify the *Other include directories* entry.
107 39 lpousse
## In the directories list, move the directory at the bottom all the way to the top.
108 38 aurelio
## Save the changes.
109 39 lpousse
## Repeat the same steps for the *RenderSystem_Direct3D9* project.
110 39 lpousse
## Re-run the build.
111 39 lpousse
# Optionnal: Check SCOLDEPS_BUILD_TUIO and SCOLDEPS_BUILD_TUIO, hit configure and repeat steps 2 to 4.
112 39 lpousse
113 26 hector
Now every required dependency should be built. The ones that we left unchecked aren't needed.

h3. From Windows, for Android

Do the same as for Windows target, but
121 39 lpousse
* If you did not already make a Windows build, run trunk/dependencies/boost/bootstrap.bat from a Visual Studio command line
122 1 arkeon
* Set source folder to trunk/dependencies and build folder to trunk/scol/build/android/<target ABI> (More generally, replace every instance of "windows/x86" in the build and install paths by "android/<target ABI>")
123 1 arkeon
* Specify the generator : "NMake"
124 1 arkeon
* The toolchain for crosscompile : trunk/dependencies/CMake/toolchain/android.<target ABI>.toolchain.cmake
125 20 brainsandwich
* When building the Scol dependencies uncheck CAUDIO_ENABLE_REROUTE_STL_ALLOCATIONS
126 39 lpousse
* Build dependencies with "nmake install" command from a Visual Studio command line.

h1. Start your new plugin

149 1 arkeon
h2. Source paths
150 1 arkeon
151 1 arkeon
Start by creating a directory with your new plugin name in the trunk/scol/plugins folder.

For example trunk/scol/plugins/myPlugin

Usually we prefer to separate the sources and the includes.
155 1 arkeon
So creates a "src" and "include" directory in your plugin folder.
156 1 arkeon
157 1 arkeon
Creates the empty files you will need for your project, usually :
158 1 arkeon
- include/myplugin.h for your classes declaration
159 1 arkeon
- src/myplugin.cpp for your classes definition
160 1 arkeon
- src/scolplugin.cpp for the Scol binding functions

h2. Dependencies
163 1 arkeon
164 1 arkeon
If your project need an external SDK or dependencies, add then in the trunk/dependencies directory.
165 1 arkeon
Then create a findMydepname.cmake file in trunk\scol\CMake\Packages.
166 1 arkeon
You can copy and change an existing Find.cmake file to make yours.
167 1 arkeon
Start from a simple one like FindMyo.cmake for example.
168 1 arkeon
169 1 arkeon
h2. Cmake files
170 1 arkeon
171 1 arkeon
It's time to creates the CMAKE script for your plugin.
172 1 arkeon
173 1 arkeon
Create a "CMakeLists.txt" file in the plugin directory.
174 1 arkeon
trunk/scol/plugins/myPlugin/CMakeLists.txt
175 1 arkeon
176 1 arkeon
And edit the file with a text editor.
