openFrameworks plugin for visual studio
Allows to create new projects easily from within Visual Studio also to add and remove addons from an existing project.
To create a new project go to File > New project > Visual C++ > openFrameworks and select openFrameworks. The "Create directory for solution" checkbox should be disabled to get the traditional OF application folder structure.
The recomended location is 2 levels below openFrameworks, for example OF_ROOT\apps\myApps. If a different path is selected the plugin will ask for the openFrameworks path:
The plugin will detect a correct openFrameworks install and won't allow to continue until one is specified.
The next screen allows to add addons to the new project
After that the project will be ready.
To add addons to an existing project, you can just right click on the project and select OF addons
This will show the same addons window as in the creation wizard allowing to add or remove addons from the project.
To correctly parse the addons of a project the addons.make file has to be correct so it's important to not touch this file manually.
