What about Qt? I don't remember it being heavily templated.
I haven't tried Qt yet because it needs to be hand-compiled with
a user supplied namespace, otherwise there isn't a namespace to
import with Calypso. I have also looked at it a bit and it uses
some of the STL files that still don't compile with Calypso, like
<iterator>, etc. so it is probably a no-go at this point.
On a brighter note things are looking extremely close for some
other libs (and one lib finally works...see below :) ). Here is a
small sample of some I have tried:
Libzmq should compile with one other change to Calypso. The
change will need to allow multiple C header files to be
modulemap'ed. The separate parts of this lib compile on their own
so once we can use multiple PCH files, this should work.
Fastflow actually DOES compile for all the C++ header files I
have tried (YAY!!), but I just can't instantiate a worker thread
(really the most basic need for this lib) because of one error I
will discuss with Elie. Hopefully it will be pretty easy to fix,
as the other minor parts of this lib that I have tried are
working at this point.
Irrlicht has some portions that compile and can be called like
CWriteFile, CLogger, CImage and some os.h functionality. I ran
into a couple errors so I stopped testing after that, but it is
Now the best news...it looks like the LEMON C++ Library works!!!
(Library for Efficient Modeling and Optimization in Networks -
I haven't tested everything, but I have imported all the headers
and compiled them without errors (I think I got them all). I have
also instantiated things like: dim2.Point, Tolerance, DHeaps,
Graphs, Digraphs and Arg_Parsers. These all instantiate fine, and
I have used a few function calls with the instances, so things
are looking exceptionally good for LEMON. We can also cast
between Digraphs and Graphs (the C++ classes) in D, so that is
looking good :)
I will try to do some more complete testing and get at least one
decent example working to show off this library. I will also
write up a tutorial on how to get Calypso up and running with
this lib (Linux only at this point as I haven't even tried the
Win build from Elie yet...and I don't believe OSX Calypso will
