noob calling again.
I am currently cloning the repository (switch from download of zip file) and while that and the subsequent setup und compilation runs (yawn) I can as well ask a few more noob questions.
Can I use a simple editor for C++ files ? Outside of the editor, I mean.
Does the engine compile independently ? Or will I have to compile outside of the engine ? (can live with both, just a question to know what awaits me)
Am I restricted to clang ? I don’t want to mess up my environment (even more) …
What I realized is that starting the editor and creating a project takes minutes (somewhat elderly machine, I7 6500, 16 GBDDR4, 7200rpm HD). Somewhere I read that recompiling a simple project can take 30min. That’s one looong coffee break, isn’t it ?
Are compilation times really that employee friendly ?
Edit: I am on Debian Linux, sorry for not mentioning.
