I'm trying to follow along with the documentation and videos, but I'm stuck where I need to run CMake from the terminal by first navigating to the mac_build directory, then typing: cmake -GXcode ../
it just spits out "-bash: cmake: command not found"
I can't find any similar problems on the forum, probably because no one here is as stupid as I am. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.
You need to install CMake and make sure it is added to your path. This is documented in the ASPiK SDK as well as in my book.
When the path is added properly, you won't get the error. MacOS is a bit more difficult to get setup.
I appreciate your response, and I promise I did read through the documentation online multiple times (though I don't have the book), but was still confused.
I've learned a little via Google about how to add paths in terminal now. There are many different ways to do it, depending on your 'shell' and other terms that I don't exactly understand, and a lot of talk about the 'right' and 'wrong' way. Here is what worked for me:
Right-click cmake.app in Applications or wherever you installed it, select 'Show Package Contents", navigate to contents->bin then right-click cmake, drag it's path over into the terminal at the end of this command:
Hopefully this will be helpful for someone else.
