How to install Snapshot version of SFML?
« on: February 16, 2022, 06:44:42 am »
Hello ;)

I have a MacBook  M1.

According to the questions and answers I read, there is no stable version. :(
So I have to install Snapshot but I do not know how to install it.
Please help me install this :)

It's not different to how you'd do it with the regular download.

Get the snapshot archive from here: https://artifacts.sfml-dev.org/by-branch/2.6.x/
Then follow the macOS Getting Started tutorial: https://www.sfml-dev.org/tutorials/2.5/start-osx.php

If you get stuck, come back and let us know with what exactly :)

In fact, the folder is a bit confusing.
It is not like X-files 86-64 and has a slightly different structure.

I did all the instructions according to the tutorial, but I could not do one command
"Xcode templates
This feature is optional but we strongly recommend that you install it. Copy the SFML directory from templates to ~ / Library / Developer / Xcode / Templates (create the folders if they do not exist yet)."



There was no such file in the folder.
How can I find this?
Or should I not do this at all? ;D

The snapshots aren't "full release packages" so any additional files are missing and the structure can slightly differ as well.
For the template, you should be able to copy the one from the official 2.5.1 release, in hopes that it's compatible.
