Open a terminal window and create a folder. In this example we will call our project “My Game”.
$ mkdir my-game $ cd ./my-game
Now we have an empty folder and are ready to initialize it to make it the root of our “My Game” project.
$ r8 init project name? [empty-project] My Game initialized a new project 'My Game' in /home/klarre/my-game (use "r8 build")
Give it a project name and just hit return.
Generate Project Files
The prepare command generates a CMakeLists.txt file.
$ r8 prepare
Build The Project
Issue the following command to build the project. The output files will be located in the _bin folder in the root directory.
$ r8 build
Build For Android
Building for Android requires a different config file in the
r8 prepare call. A pre-configured config is already available in the project’s root directory.
$ r8 prepare --config ./config.android.yml $ r8 build
