Building on Linux

OS_Linux_256x256-32Building on Linux

 

Step 1.  In the CMake GUI, with the source code path still pointing out the source code of SOFA, set the variable SOFA_EXTERNAL_DIRECTORIES to the path of your SoftRobots plugin (and SoftRobots.Inverse if needed).

Step 2. Finally, you can start the compilation of the plugin by going into the build directory and launching (depending on your build system):

ninja

or

make

Step 3. You can now test the plugin by using:

cd YOUR_BUILD_DIR/bin
runSofa PATH_TO_SOFA/applications/plugins/SoftRobots/docs/examples/AN_EXAMPLE 
runSofa PATH_TO_SOFA/applications/plugins/SoftRobots/docs/tutorials/AN_EXAMPLE

or/and

cd YOUR_BUILD_DIR/bin 
runSofa PATH_TO_SOFA/applications-dev/plugins/SoftRobots.Inverse/docs/examples/AN_EXAMPLE

NB: Most of the examples provided in the SoftRobots and SoftRobots.Inverse plugins require the SofaPython or SofaPython3 plugins.
The runSofa application has a plugin manager. If you want a plugin library to be loaded by the application you have two options:

  1. Add to your scene a “RequiredPlugin” component (see the modeler application for more information, or the examples provided in the plugin)
  2. Manually add it using the “Edit/plugin manager” of the runSofa application
