Want to setup an IDE to debug / develop synfig ?

Here, we will not discuss of witch IDE is better or if real hacker do all with vi/emacs

Clone the code my dear

This assume you already cloned the code from git
note end

OpenGL support currently broken

OpenGL support is currently broken and the compilation of synfig-core will crash unless you compile it with --without-opengl. See [this forums post] for more details. (you can also modify synfig-core's configure.ac in the section --with-opengl which is active by default)
note end


Anjuta from gnu/linux

(Tested with Anjuta 3.14.0)

What Anjuta is?

First build !

This will generate all needed makefile

  • Open "autobuild/synfigstudio-linux-build.sh" and change "DEBUG=0" to "DEBUG=1" (line 76)
  • Build from "autobuild/synfigstudio-linux-build.sh"
  • During this time install "anjuta" from synaptic or whatever ... (from xubuntu 14.10 you must install Anjuta 3.14 from this ppa for example : see here why)

when anjuta installed and synfig builded....

Import synfig (etl / core / studio) projects in Anjuta

  • Open Anjuta, in "Action" choose "Import a project" and choose your code location (synfig/ETL , synfig/synfig-core or synfig/synfig-studio)
  • Select a project name and Import
  • At the project backend choice, select "Autotools" and go for it (if you kept the default project name, replace the existing project with the new one)
  • Wait a minute ... project loaded !

Repeat for each synfig project

Your now able to build from Anjuta.

Want to debug maybe ?

  • From Anjuta "<Menu> → <Execute> → <Program Paramter> → Program" : select synfig-studio binary "/home/user/synfig/bin" (i also setup the working directory)
  • Now you need to clean the project and build it again (but this time from anjuta)
  • Anjuta "<Menu> → <Build> → Clean"
  • Anjuta "<Menu> → <Build> → Build"

you (shouldbe) are ready to debug / improve / patch and share !

Extra note

As Anjuta projects are saved in git examined folders, you could have sort of behavior when you git your code ... personally i have made a little script to backup/restore my own project to keep the folder safe of undesired change (.gitignore is also git surveyed !)

Eclipse from gnu/linux

(Tested with Eclipse 3.8.1)

What Eclipse is?

First build !

This will generate all needed makefile

  • Open "autobuild/synfigstudio-linux-build.sh" and change "DEBUG=0" to "DEBUG=1" (line 76)
  • Build from "autobuild/synfigstudio-linux-build.sh"
  • During this time install "eclipse" & "eclispe-cdt" packages from synaptic or whatever ...

when eclipse installed and synfig builded....

Import synfig (etl / core / studio) projects in Eclipse

Open Eclipse, choose your desired place for the workspace (i recommend not in ./synfig folder if you want to commit, better just above)

For each synfig component (etl / core / studio ...)

  1. Eclipse / Menu / Makefile project with existing code
  2. Choose your project name (etl / core / studio ...)
  3. Select code location (synfig/ETL , synfig/synfig-core or synfig/synfig-studio)
  4. Select your toolchain ... and click Finish ... and Wait a little ...

Your now able to build from Eclipse.

Want to debug maybe ?

  • From "Project Explorer" panel, select your project properties (alt+enter / menu-project or right clicking)
  • In "C/C++ Build" Uncheck "Use default build command" and put a "make -j2 install" (-jXX at your connivance ...)
  • In "Run/Debug Setting" click "New" or "Edit..." , in C/C++ Application , browse and select the synfig-studio binary from "/home/user/synfig/bin"

Stop on Startup, what the heck ?


you (shouldbe) are ready to debug / improve / patch and share !

Have a functional environment

Add Includes paths to Code Analysis

  • From "Project Explorer" panel, select your project properties (alt+enter / menu-project or right clicking)
  • In C/C++ General / Paths and Symbols / Includes , add all the paths you need (ETL / Synfig-core / Cairo / Gtkmm ....)

Netbeans from gnu/linux

(Tested with Netbeans 8.0.2)
What Netbeans is?
Done following the video tutorial made by Konstantin Dmitriev (in russian ;))
Assuming the source will be installed in /home/yourUsername/sources/synfig.single in the screenshots
Don't forget to replace it with your own userName!

Install Netbeans

Be aware you need to have a JDK devel package installed on your machine to be able to install Netbeans
On Fedora, I had to install it with the following command "yum install -y java-1.8.0-openjdk-devel" (or "dnf install -y java-1.8.0-openjdk-devel" on latest version)

Install "Netbeans" from synaptic or from the original download page, if not done already ...

First build !

This will generate all needed makefile

  • Open "autobuild/synfigstudio-linux-build.sh" and change "DEBUG=0" to "DEBUG=1" (line 76)

OR

  • Another possibility (like on the video) is to set DEBUG=1 (and a space) before the script name in the console

in the console enter:" /home/yourUsername/sources/synfig.single/autobuild/synfigstudio-linux-build.sh"

when Netbeans installed and synfig builded....

Import synfig (etl / core / studio) projects in Netbeans

  • Open Netbeans
  • Open File/New Project....

1. Choose Project

  • Choose "C/C++ Project" under "Categories",
  • Choose "C/C++ Project with Existing Sources"
Install In Netbeans 1.png
  • 2. Select Mode
Source folder /home/yourUsername/sources/synfig.single
Build Host localhost
Tools Collection Default(GNU (GNU))
Configuration Mode Custom
Install In Netbeans 2.png

3. Build Tool

  • Using an existing makefile

"/home/yourUsername/sources/synfig.single/synfig-studio/Makefile"

  • Uncheck "Clean and Build after Finish"
Install In Netbeans 3.png

4. Build Action

Working Directory "/home/yourUsername/sources/synfig.single/synfig-studio"
Build Command "${MAKE} -f Makefile -j 4 install"
Clean Command "${MAKE} -f Makefile clean"
Build Result "/home/yourUsername/synfig/bin/synfigstudio"
Install In Netbeans 4.png
5. Source Files
  • Add "/home/yourUsername/sources/synfig.single"
Install In Netbeans 5.png
6. Code Assistance Configuration
  • Choose "Automatic Configuration"
Install In Netbeans 6.png
7. Project Name and Location
Project Name "synfig.single"
Project Location "/home/yourUsername/sources"
Project Folder "/home/yourUsername/sources/synfig.single"
Build Host "localhost"
Tool Collection "Default(GNU (GNU))"
Install In Netbeans 7.png
  • Press "Finish"
  • Wait a minute ... project loaded !

You are now able to build from Netbeans.
