I don't know what sublime text provides, but I'm sure you can just web search on how to configure a C++ project.

If it supports CMake, I also highly recommend to use the SFML CMake Template

I use Siblime Text 4 with CMD. If you work on Windows you can install MinGW and build SFML with CMake GUI (or with the console version of CMake). Create a file with the "makefile" name and copy the content below to "makefile". This example shows how to include a few libraries like SFML, FMOD (for sounds), and Box2D (for physics, collision detection, ray casting and so on). To build the next example to EXE you should type the "mingw32-make" command in CMD.


Code: [Select]
CC = g++
INC = -I"E:\Libs\SFML-2.5.1-windows-gcc-7.3.0-mingw-64-bit\include" \
      -I"E:\Libs\box2d-2.4.1-mingw-64-bit\include" \
      -I"C:\Program Files\FMOD SoundSystem\FMOD Studio API Windows\api\core\inc"
LIB = -L"E:\Libs\SFML-2.5.1-windows-gcc-7.3.0-mingw-64-bit\lib" \
all: main.o
    $(CC) main.o $(LIB) -static \
    "C:\Program Files\FMOD SoundSystem\FMOD Studio API Windows\api\core\lib\x64\fmod.dll" \
    -lsfml-graphics-s -lsfml-window-s -lsfml-system-s -lfreetype \
    -lopengl32  -lwinmm  -lgdi32 -lbox2d -o app
main.o: main.cpp
    $(CC) $(FLAGS) $(INC) main.cpp


Code: [Select]
#include <iostream>
#include <SFML/Graphics.hpp>
#include <box2d/box2d.h>
#include <fmod.h>
b2Vec2 gravity(0.0f, 9.8f);
b2World world(gravity);
FMOD_SYSTEM *m_pSystem;
FMOD_SOUND *m_pSound;
int main()
    // Print the gravity
    std::cout << gravity.y << std::endl;
    FMOD_System_Create(&m_pSystem, FMOD_VERSION);
    FMOD_System_Init(m_pSystem, 32, FMOD_INIT_NORMAL, 0);
    FMOD_System_CreateSound(m_pSystem, "sounds/gamestart.ogg", FMOD_LOOP_OFF | FMOD_2D, 0, &m_pSound);
    FMOD_System_PlaySound(m_pSystem, m_pSound, 0, false, 0);
    sf::RenderWindow window(sf::VideoMode(240, 240), "SFML works!");
    sf::CircleShape shape(120.f);
    while (window.isOpen())
        sf::Event event;
        while (window.pollEvent(event))
            if (event.type == sf::Event::Closed)
    return 0;
