Hello,

 

I'm using the Vala programming language to write a game. I wish to build it using the SFML library as the frontend - the bit that communicates with the window manager (using Linux btw). I'm planning on using OpenGL to render a GL context, then display that using SFML in the window.

 

Luckily, I have found a set of SFML Vala VAPIs (API bindings) and have put them into the right directory. Unfortunately when compiling, I run into issues and I'm not sure why.

 

Here is my Vala code (in sfml.vala)

using GLib;
using SFML.Audio;
using SFML.System;
using SFML.Window;
using SFML.Graphics;

namespace GLib
{
	class Default : Object
	{
		public static int main(string[] args)
		{
			stdout.printf("Hello, World!\n");
			
			return 0;
		}
	}
}

As you can see, I am using SFML. But when I try to compile using this command...

valac src/sfml.vala --pkg sfml-graphics --pkg sfml-system --pkg sfml-window --pkg sfml-audio --vapidir=vapi

...I run into the errors posted below.

If you are wondering, the VAPI files are here in this repository: https://bitbucket.org/hohoo/vala-sfml/src/24927cd9f649?at=default

 

Does anyone know why this is happening or how I can fix it?

 

Thanks,
