CMake compatible project

Post by webhdx » Thu Oct 29, 2020 11:49 am

Hello
I'm making another attempt at GC/Wii development. Does anyone have CMake setup working with devkitpro with all build targets ported? I'm done with Makefile and its lack of support in any modern IDE.

no, and it's a pain in the ass! Generally the whole devkitppc toolchain has been a pain. lots of older software cannot be recompiled without extensive modification, and documentation and guidance on how to upgrade projects or what has been changed and why, isnt readily available. maybe if you hang out in their irc channel but that's hardly an efficient way to work on hobby projects. Using an IDE like Visual studio also doesnt help that much, because it easily gets confused due to it not understanding the relationship between everything, and the builds working completely outside of it, and tools like devc++ and code::blocks who use makefile like setups just arent adequate since they lack a lot of modern tooling that can make a hobby project feasible for people who can't dedicate a lot of time.

mGBA uses CMake and it's working just fine.
