Creating a plugin

To create a new plugin for ApertusVR use apm to generate folders and files. In the following example, we create a new plugin called "ipCamera":

ApertusVR\utilities\apm>python apm.py create plugin ipCamera
Creating new plugin with the following properties:
name: ipCamera
path: ../../plugins/ipCamera/
class name: ApeIpCameraPlugin
header name: APE_IPCAMERAPLUGIN_H
header file path: ../../plugins/ipCamera/ApeIpCameraPlugin.h
cpp file path: ../../plugins/ipCamera/ApeIpCameraPlugin.cpp
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]

If you find everything in order, type 'y' and press enter to continue.

If you want to add your newly created plugin to plugins/CMakeLists.txt, just type 'y' when apm asks it:

Add to plugins/CMakeLists.txt? [Y/n] y

In order to see your new plugin in your IDE, don't forget to

  1. regenerate the CMake project

  2. reload / reopen the generated project file in your IDE.

after editing CMakeLists.txt files.
