I have been trying to get shadow maps to work, but I can;t even get past the depth buffer part of it. I've been looking on the internet for hours now, yadayadayada. Here is my code so far -

 

Making the FBO and the texture for depth:

 GLuint framebuffer;
    GLuint depth;
    GLuint texture;

    glGenFramebuffers(1, &framebuffer);
    glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, framebuffer);
    
    glGenTextures(1, &texture);
    glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture);
    
    glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA8, 1280, 800, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_FLOAT, NULL);
    glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_NEAREST);
    glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST);
    
    glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
    glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
    
    glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0);

    
    glGenTextures(1, &depth);
    glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, depth);
    
    glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT, 1280, 800, 0, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT, GL_FLOAT, NULL);
    glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
    glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
    
    glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
    glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
    
    glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0);

    
    
    
    glFramebufferTexture2D(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT, GL_TEXTURE_2D, depth, 0);
    //glFramebufferTexture2D(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0, GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture, 0);
    glDrawBuffer(GL_NONE);
    
    
    if (glCheckFramebufferStatus(GL_FRAMEBUFFER) != GL_FRAMEBUFFER_COMPLETE)
        std::cout << "There was a problem with making the framebuffer\n";
    glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, 0);
    
    return framebuffer;

Rendering the 'depth' to a quad for viewing:

glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, FBO);
    glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT);

 for (int i = 0; i < objects.size(); i++)
        {
            objects[i].renderObjectForDepth();
        }
glBindFrameBuffer(GL_TEXTURE_2D,0);
glBindTexture2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture)
drawQuad();

And to me, everything looks fine, but It generates images like the picture attached. I've been ripping out my hair for days now, and any help would be appreciated.
