Libraries and Dependencies

From The DarkMod Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

All the third-party libraries are downloaded, configured and built using conan package manager. This is the recommended way to handle libraries. Read file ThirdParty/readme.md for more details about this way.

Even if conan is not your good friend, be sure to follow these rules regarding location in the source code repo:

  1. Everything related to third-party libraries must be inside ThirdParty subdirectory.
  2. All the binaries (e.g. .lib and .a files) must be inside ThirdParty/artefacts subdirectory, sorted by platform+ABI according to conventions.

Note that some libraries are embedded directly into the source code (MD4 and MD5 hashes, PropTree GUI helper). However, this way is discouraged: think twice and ask guys of forums before using it!
