I’m looking to deep-dive into a creative coding library, and I really like the look of Cinder’s example library. A primary aim is to gain experience how to use C++ well and Cinder’s examples look more idiomatic in its approach to C++ when compared to OpenFrameworks, which is the other library I’m considering.
However, looking through the forum and commit history, and it appears from the outside (perhaps incorrectly!) that Cinder development has been less active recently and I’m wondering about whether OpenFrameworks would be a safer option to invest my time in, as there appears to be more recent activity in the forum and repository.
I’m looking for some unbiased advice about what people would choose if starting from scratch in 2020.
