As Lukas pointed out this is already a settled matter.

Try using the CMake project template and see if that's any easier for you. It's a lot easier to use.

System / Re: what do I need to fully use the library of SFML?

Follow the instructions for our official CMake tutorial. If you have any issues then please come to the Discord server to ask for help.


Linking to the `sfml-graphics` target should also result in the correct include directories being specified.

Your C++ and CMake code should not include build/_deps paths. That's unnecessary and a sign that some problem still exists elsewhere.

In this past I've seen this problem caused by someone having unnecessary files laying around. They had some sfml-graphics prebuilt library lying around from previous failed attempts to use SFML. Once they deleted that file then CMake started working again. In general don't have stale files laying around since they're prone to break things simply by existing.

Yes we actively maintain Android support and have a few users who routinely provide bug fixes and other enhancements

Did you remember to define SFML_STATIC?

You'll need to share more of the error to know what the actual problem is.

General / Re: Building SFML project error with sf::VideoMode
« on: October 04, 2023, 03:38:34 am »
This is almost certainly an issue with using SFML 3 headers alongside SFML 2 libraries. Try using the official template instead to avoid this problem.


General / Re: SFML, ImGui and SFML-ImGui with CMake

The new way you're doing it is much better so please keep using that solution. It's better in many ways than the old version.

I think your old solution was failing because you I don't see you ever compiling the ImGui-SFML sources into Libs.

For future reference, the official SFML CMake template project includes a branch that demonstrates how to use ImGui-SFML. Check it out here: https://github.com/SFML/cmake-sfml-project/blob/imgui-sfml/CMakeLists.txt

Homebrew will install SFML built for your current CPU architecture so I'm not sure how you could accidentally mix the two. So long as you use don't tell the compiler to target a different architecture, the compiler will also target your current CPU architecture.

SFML development / Re: Multi-line Text Alignment

Please reach out in the #contributing channel of the Discord server if you have any questions. I'm much easier to find there than on the forums which I check much less often.

SFML 3. We're not accepting SFML 2 features anymore. That means you have full access to anything you want from C++17 which should make it easier to implement.

SFML development / Re: Multi-line Text Alignment
« on: August 18, 2023, 07:15:03 pm »
The ability to wrap text and pick left, right, center, justified alignment would be really nice since as it stands now users are forced to do all that themselves which understandably scares people away from using blocks of text.

General / Re: SFML integration via CMakeList.txt (static library)
« on: August 14, 2023, 10:03:13 pm »
The template I shared will work for you. The code in that CMakeLists.txt will download and build SFML for you so that you can get ride of most of the CMake code you wrote yourself. Your build script will become much smaller and the linker errors will go away if you're willing to at least try it. The README in that repo explains how to use it. For the most part you just grab that build script, tweak the .cpp files to match what you have, then run 2 CMake commands.

What you're doing is over complicating things and is prone to fail in ways that are pretty confusing unless you're already very familiar with how compiling and linking C++ works. If you've spent this long struggling with your current strategy, maybe it's time to reevaluate how you're approaching this problem.

Have you tried the CMake template project we wrote?
