Install SFML on Windows without using no IDEs (only cmd).
« on: October 06, 2023, 11:23:12 am »
I would like to install SFML on Windows without the using on no IDEs (only cmd).

I've never used Windows cmd commands, so I have zero knowledge about it, wich is not possible for me to install such libraries without any help from you.

I wonder if can anyone on here help me to install SFML step by step.

Thank you.

You have no idea how the command line on Windows works, yet you really want to use it, but you don't want to learn anything about it on your own, so you expect others to explain you everything step by step?
That's a bit pretentious in my opinion. ;)

Maybe invest a bit time first in understand how the command line works and then ask when you get stuck with something.

Personally, I recommend using the CMake and you can use the CMake SFML Template which also lists the basic commands in the readme.
Additionally, if you work more often on Windows, you might actually consider using Windows PowerShell instead of the plain command line.
