C and C++ code base


#1

Hi All,

I am new to Electron. I have a very big code base written in C and C++. I am planning to add UI for this code by using Electron. What would be the best approach to start with ? Should I make C/C++ code as dynamic library and link with Electron ? Which tools and IDE should I use for compiling C/C++ code ?

Thanks,

This seems like an odd question. Why are you planning on using a very big C/C++ codebase to interface with JavaScript when you don’t have a preference regarding your C/C++ tools? Anyway, all the major multi-language IDEs can handle C/C++.

You’re going to have to build a bridge. Unless the codebase already outputs everything you need from it, you might need to modify it for this purpose.
