Did someone already build a c++ framework for external objects?

October 25, 2011 | 5:24 pm

After playing with the basics of creating externals, it quickly became clear that a set of C++ classes that encapsulate the API would be very useful (to me at least). I saw that someone created an objective-c project but not clear how active it is nor how useful as it would not be much good for windows.

Before I go build something, I’d love to know what else is out there.

Thanks, I’ll take a look at it to see if it suits my needs.

You may be interested in the Jamoma ( project. While it provides much more than this, I think it can be useful to write you own externals.

The Jamoma website may not be the most informative about this particular aspect, but you are more than welcome to ask for info on the developper mailing list/forum.
