Notice : SWIG for SFML
« on: July 06, 2011, 08:43:48 pm »
Hi folks,

I've finished a SWIG wrapper for SFML (version 2). You could find it on my blog:


You must download the ZIP file and follow the instructions.

For now, the wrapper is generated and can compile  (without error), but I can't doing it working due to a lake of time and skills under Windows.

Stay in touch.

SWIG was initially not chosen to create the bindings because it is too generic. Bindings need to stick to the language specificities, be tweaked to avoid bugs, etc.

But I'm not an expert, so I'm intertested in your feedback :)

It's not perfect but it may do the job if there are no (actively maintained) bindings for your language.
And maintaining a binding is anything but fun.
