My friends. My dear creative colleagues. All I want to know is… how. to install. Cinder. One would think this could be found in the very first paragraph of the Set Up Guide, indeed that it might in fact be the purpose of the Set Up Guide… alas, here I am, hours later. Xcode running aimlessly, without purpose. The pre-packaged Cinder download folder sitting there, splayed open on the desktop. Lifeless and unintelligible. 10 open tabs of Youtube “tutorials” with no explanations, spoken, written, or otherwise – just screen footage of speed typing neckbeards.
If you haven’t gathered by now, I am unabashedly a n00b in every sense. I have a basic theoretical understanding of C++ from resources like Sololearn, but very little deep hands on coding experience. Apart from their purpose, I have a limited understanding of how C++ libraries work. Can someone please, using words, explain how to install the library. Which file? In which folder in this mess of a download package? Is this a drag and drop kind of operation or copy and paste into the command line and hope you did it right? Am I completely missing the obvious? As I mentioned, I am using Mac, Xcode, and every ounce of patience I possess. Thank you all in advance for your kind and timely responses.
