SFML + Emscripten ?
« on: October 04, 2015, 05:06:41 pm »
I'm trying to get a game made in SFML inside a browser.

So I found Emscripten which I thought could do it easily. I was wrong. After setting it up and trying to compile I get this: "This UNIX operating system is not supported by SFML library" (config.hpp:92)

Apparently it wasn't meant to be easy. So is there anything I can do to achieve my goal? Maybe compile SFML myself and set the directive to one of the other Unix options? I could use a hint or two.

SFML doesn't support Emscripten or rather Emscripten doesn't support SFML. It can be done, but you'll have to rewrite SFML's OpenGL code to support OpenGL ES 2 and you'll have to compile all its dependencies properly and get it to fully link.

Long story short: Don't

There are many tools out there to write stuff for your browser, SFML currently just isn't one of them.

Alright, thank you.
I'll figure out something else then...
