In Topic: Dropbox + TortoiseSVN; Where is the advantage? (New to SC)

Using one repo to store both code+data does have it's advantages... 


Use a meta if want that; have a third repo that ties asset releases to code releases.

You do not want to have to pull a multi-gigabyte repo just to get the code.

@Alberth, The largefile extension has issues - it violates the peer-to-peer design.

No one has asked how they filled 2GB into a code repo?


Source-control is not for asset management.

Switching from git to svn is going 15 years backwards in time.


You can put a git repo into dropbox as well.

All this does is back it up for you.

You cannot have 2 people working this way as dropbox does not implement the synchronization necessary for this to work.

You will corrupt your repository.


Dropbox gets you a 1 user backup.

OpenTK is a working .NET library that bring OpenGL and a pile of other stuff to C#/.NET

You could use it or just reference it.


I just wrote my own wrapper that works with EGL and ES 2.

With ANGLE you can make that work on Windows.

(And with Mono it works on Linux.)

In Topic: Why automake?

21 June 2015 - 12:10 PM

I just use make.  

MinGW or Cygwin solve the problem on Windows.

MinGW is simpler but it has an older version of make, 3.8.

Cygwin is running 4.x

In Topic: Easy source control for educational uses?

Use BitBucket and host a Mercurial (hg) repository instead of git.

A lot easier to learn but still a peer source control tool.
