Soooo…. I just want to let you know that this project isn’t dead 😀
Some things that motivated me again:
- Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition available “for free”
This is really exciting as this version replaces the express editions but feature-wise it is equivalent to VS 2013 Professional! Looking forward to VS 2015 Community Edition with more C++1x features.
- Discovery of a nice C++ reflection library called CAMP (also on Github).
- Discovery of YAML – a very neat configuration file format as a fat-free alternative to XML or even JSON. There is an easy-to-use C++ parser for it.
I’ll write more about how I use CAMP and YAML for game development in the next article.
