🦭 An example CLion mulle-objc project
This example project is also useful as a template for new CLion projects. Follow these three steps to generate a new mulle-objc project based on the Foundation.
1. Generate new CLion project on GitHub
On GitHub generate your own project with MulleObjCClionDemo as the template. Here we are using "myproject" as the new name.
In CLion in the welcome screen or the new/open project dialog
choose "Get from VCS", then enter the URL of your new project:
If this doesn't show up, check "File / Settings / Build Execution Deployment / ToolChains", which is the same dialog basically.
On the "Toolchains > CMake" configuration page, you can leave everything as is.
You should now have the local project opened in CLion. But there will be some errors, because libraries aren't installed yet:
CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND. Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files: C_WRAP_LIB linked by target "MulleObjCClionDemo" in directory /home/mulle-kybernetik-tv/CLionProjects/myproject FOUNDATION_WRAP_LIB linked by target "MulleObjCClionDemo" in directory /home/mulle-kybernetik-tv/CLionProjects/myproject FOUNDATION_WRAP_STARTUP_LIB linked by target "MulleObjCClionDemo" in directory /home/mulle-kybernetik-tv/CLionProjects/myproject -- Generating done CMake Generate step failed. Build files cannot be regenerated correctly.
2. Get mulle-objc Foundation libraries
To get things to compile you need the Foundation repackaged in a special format and placed
into a folder
usr in your project directory.
mulle-objc version 0.20
For this to work you need to repackage all the Objective-C libraries as well as mulle-sprintf of Foundation into
FoundationWrap. Place the
mulle-atexit libraries into FoundationWrap-startup. Combine all the remaining
C files into a c-wrap library. Create a directory
usr/include and copy all the headers recursively there. Create a directory
usr/lib and copy the three
mulle-objc version 0.21 (Future as of 1.2022) and beyond
Assuming your project is called "myproject" and has been placed into
mulle-sde install --debug --prefix ~/CLionProjects/myproject/usr https://github.com/MulleFoundation/FoundationWrap
3. Reload CMake caches
CLion's cmake cache needs to be resetted to work with the new configuration. Chose "Tools / Cmake / Reset Cache and Reload Project"
