Title: Sorry, I'm out
Post by: pdinklag on January 19, 2016, 10:34:24 am
I guess I should finally make this official: I won't continue developing JSFML.

This is difficult for me on one hand, but on the other hand it will make my life easier and make things clear for people wondering what is going on here.

To answer the latter - nothing is going on with JSFML from my side. I am packed with work - producing music, running a small music label, studying and working at the university - and last but certainly not least, there's life itself. I have not been using Java in almost a year now, because my job changed and I grew to hate Oracle's BS. There is no development environment for JSFML that I maintained. Building the native stuff for multiple environments has been a major pain, because I have no frequent Linux system nor a Mac. To make things worse, apparently, SFML cannot be built on Windows 10 / VS 2015 without additional efforts - so my Windows environment is nixed for SFML as well.

Each time I try to motivate myself to get JSFML updated, I hit on issues like this and it plagues me. I have no use for it myself anymore and thus, I decided to just drop the burden now. Everything is on Github, so whoever wants to pick up on it: please go ahead! I'll be available to answer questions about how it works.

I apologize to those who rely on JSFML and were hoping for timely updates. Thank you for your interest in the project!

Sad to see you stop maintaining the project, but totally understandable.

Not sure what you mean exactly, but SFML starting with this commit (https://github.com/SFML/SFML/commit/6b9781475d70272538a5ce48ad96f583f3a373c3) works fine on VS 2015 (and Windows 10).

Well, thank YOU for your work! Hope you the best with your music, studies and of course life in general! ;)

Thank you!
If anybody's into trance music, here's what I'm doing: http://veasna.de :)

I had some kind of compiler or linker error, can't remember details to be honest. I looked for that in the forum and what I got was essentially "you can't build with VS 2015 on Win 10".

Cloned from Github (last stable, 2.3.2 I think), generated VS project using CMake, tried to build 64-bit. There usually wasn't any more I had to do. It doesn't involve any Java, so I can give it another try one of these days and report if it fails. :)

Hello everyone ! :)

I think I have the motivation to continue the development of JSFML !
I'm currently doing a JAVA-based professional training and have been using SFML for years (I have even presented several projects on the forum, with another pseudonym though). I'm currently studying the pdinklag code and trying to understand some subtilities. I hope that somebody is still interested by using the latest version of SFML in java.

I'll keep you informed ! ;)
