Re: Minor request for the installer release 1.7

Yup the install worked fine. My only issues was that I would anticipate having multiple versions of CS over the years, so how do I differentiate them. Being the standard ignorant user and just clicking yes yes yes yes ... I got a dir: C:\CopperSpice where I should have ... at least for my taste crea...

Minor request for the installer release 1.7

I just installed the Windows package and the default location was: C:\CopperSpice

Since I anticipate having multiple version of CS over time may I suggest C:\CopperSpice\1.7 or something like that. Where the version is identified.

I know picky picky... thanks :D

Re: Possible impending Qt fork and copperspice opportunity

Wow ... let me catch my breath.... Seasoned_geek is on a roll. First let me say I too am some what of a "curmudgeon" but some of the statements appear a bit extreme. I also know this is a Copperspice forum but Open Source licensing is big factor.... my intent is to always do the "right thing" and no...

Re: Copperspice with Qt Creator set up . NEED HELP

Something to consider .... since you are on windows, did you consider using the MSVS 2019 Community Edition compiler? Notice I said compiler and not IDE. I concur that ninja is the right builder to combine with CMake ... it is fast and does a good job. I would start off building a HelloWorld app wit...

Re: How to translate this .pro file to build with Cs?

I know the debate of qmake (.pro) vs cmake will go on for some time. But even the Qt company is transitioning to CMake. QBS was supposed to be sort of a qmake ver 2, and was going to be the build platform for Qt 6. But then in late 2018 "Deprecation of Qbs" (https://www.qt.io/blog/2018/10/29/depreca...

Does Jan Wilmans appear in Jason Turner “The Best Parts of C++"?

Ok not technical , but I think Jan is "value".... which is far better than virtual or even imaginary. I have seen Jan's name more that a few times associated with Copperspice...Jan is that you?

Issue with documentation

I was looking at the page "CopperSpice Project Using CMake" (https://www.copperspice.com/docs/cs_overview/sample-cs-cmake.html) You have in red the words CMakeLists.txt and HelloLunch, these are not links ... but the CMakelists.txt are on the same page, ok this is fine. The "Hellolunch" refers to a ...

Opportunities?

So there is a new elephant in the room: https://www.qt.io/blog/qt-offering-changes-2020 With follow on blog posts like: https://valdyas.org/fading/author/boud/ , and there are many more like this, so the natives are restless. This feels like a opportunity for CS. Can CS reach out to the Krita projec...
