My company allowed me to share some bits of code that might be usefull to the Unreal Engine community.
As a prerequisite, you’ll need to have python installed and git as well. Also these hooks are useless on entirely blueprint based projects.
What the hooks exactly do are:
- After every checkout, intermediate and binary folders will be deleted if there are diff in the Source folder of your unreal project.
- The same will be done after every pull and merge.
This way, you can just automaticly force recompilation when recieving source code modification. Anyone that is not a programmer won’t ever have to touch to the folders and will just have to recompile a clean version of the project if they recieve new c++ script.
You can find the snippets here.
(there’s also some LFS code, you can get rid of it by deleting line 2 and 4 of both the post-merge and post-checkout hooks)
In order for these to work, you need to download the 3 files and just put them inside your
That’s it! Feel free to share!
